Average Daily Traffic (1998):  Ranges from 6,300 to 7,200 (Section #1).  Section #2 ranges from 3,100 to 3,500.

Notes:  An interesting highway with a "gap" in the form of Stennis Space Center.  Active-duty military types can go through the base, but not everyone can.

What I'd Do:  Even with the restrictions in Stennis Space Center, I would redesignate the section through the base as MS 607, as well as 4-lane the route all the way up to I-59.
