Ahh, that helps. Thanks a lot. Of course, it would take somebody from Mississippi to know this.

The US 72-MS 7 roundabout is approaching completion. It'll be interesting to see how this works out. Myself, if I were using the one-lane portions of the circle, I wouldn't assume that US 72 traffic would obey the yield signs despite being forced to slow down.

Note that there are corners obstructing smooth movements from the one-lane portions of the circle into the left lane of the two-lane portions.

Street view from October shows the progress of the US 82 Greenville bypass around Leland, MS.

The Ghostbuster:
The US 82/US 278 Greenville Bypass should have been completed a long time ago. It looks like it will finally be completed in Fall 2025.

It should have been.

It fell on the back burner when it looked like I-69 was coming fairly soon and fairly close. Now that I -69 looks half a century away (if ever) and not necessarily close.  If that had happened, it would have been duplicitous and likely under utilized. Completion of this road from MS-1 to US-61 (near Leland) signifies that Mississippi has no interest in the Great River Crossing (Dean Bridge). It probably signifies the last nail in its coffin.

I need to add one thing. This is just the upgrade of US-82 and US-278 from Greenville to Leland.Not so much part of the bypass

The largest Arkansas proponent for it being in that location is pretty much out of the picture now. Following a ROUGH US-82 route from El Dorado to the Mississippi River (at US-82) is relatively (if not a few less road miles) AND there is already a bridge there.  There is absolutely NO REASON for there to be two crossings within less than 30 miles of one another in a countryside (total population on both sides of the river) of less than 100,000 people.
