MS 25 as it runs through Rankin County, north of Jackson.

Mississippi Highway 25 runs from I-55 in Jackson, Mississippi to the Tennessee state line north of Iuka. The largely controlled-access part from Jackson to Starkville connects the state capital with the main campus of Mississippi State University.

History[edit]

Failure of the Mississippi Highway 25 N/U.S. Route 45 S bridge over the Tombigbee River relief (Big Nichols Creek)/Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway in Aberdeen, Mississippi during the March 1955 floods.

As of June 28, 2006, 150 miles (240 km) of continuous four-lane divided highway is open between Starkville, Mississippi and Jackson, Mississippi. The last leg to open was the 11.9-mile (19.2 km), $27-million section from the intersection of Highway 19 north of Louisville, Mississippi, to Noxapater Creek in Winston County. This is one of the culminations of the 1987 Four-Lane Highway Program (commonly referred to as AHEAD Program) for improving Mississippi roadways.

On May 10, 2006 the next-to-last leg, a 10.1-mile (16.3 km), $23-million section, opened from the Oktibbeha County line west into Winston County.

Future[edit]

All of Highway 25, except for the portion between West Point, Mississippi and Fulton, Mississippi will be an at least four-lane divided highway by the mid-2010s, per Mississippi House Bill 725 of the 1998 session.
