Average Daily Traffic (1998):  Ranges from 140 at the Alabama line to 1,000 near MS 19.

Notes:  The first three miles east of MS 19 were reconstructed, realigned, and widened in 1998-99.  This section is a very nice road, but unfortunately, that wasn't enough to stop one head-on collision in mid-April 2000 that resulted in 2 deaths.

What I'd Do:  Nothing at present.
