Froggie's Notes:

- This route runs closer to the Mississippi River than US 61, and there are some good views of the river here and there.
- Some of this road is designated as the Great River Road.
- There is a proposal from the city of Greenville for an Interstate spur off of proposed/future I-69, from near Benoit south to the future US 82 Greenville bypass.  Some of this Interstate spur would be built on top of existing MS 1.  This Interstate spur was also recommended in the I-69 Special Issues Study.  You can read more about this proposed spur here.

Froggie Suggests:

- Decommission between US 61 and Mayersville.
- Remove MS 1 from the MS 1/MS 14 duplex, leaving the existing route as just MS 14.
- Widen to 4 lanes from N. Broadway in Greenville to Metcalfe Rd.
- If the proposed Interstate spur off of I-69 gets built, extend the 4-lane section on MS 1 north to where it would meet the spur.
