JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — About 15 streets will soon be repaved in Jackson.

Crews will start this week on another neighborhood project, this time in Ward 7. The project is a part of the Operation Orange Cone Initiative.

The paving will be paid for out of funds collected from the 1 percent sales tax.

“These are Jackson’s 1 percent dollars at work,” said Mayor Tony T. Yarber. “This city’s infrastructure has been neglected for decades, and we’re now able to see some progress from numerous road and bridge projects funded by the tax.”

Below is a list of streets scheduled for paving this week:

  • Commerce Street
  • Wilmington Street
  • Lee Drive
  • Grandview Circle
  • High Street
  • Wesley Street
  • Lamar Street
  • Lasalle Street
  • Arrowhead Drive
  • Carlisle Street
  • East Pearl Street
  • Larson Street
  • Roosevelt Street
  • N. Lamar Street
  • S. Roach Street
