The combined MS 24/48 corridor between Woodville and McComb is part of Phase IV of the 1987 Highway Program, which covers much of this route.

What I'd Do:
4-lane it between US 61 and Centreville, then between Liberty and I-55, with a bypass of Liberty.  Centreville to Gloster could be a "super-2" candidate.
