Several branches of Mississippi 184 are posted along former sections of U.S. 84 replaced with four lane alignments. Many of these act as business routes from the U.S. 84 mainline, connecting the city center with a controlled access bypass. The segments of Mississippi 184 are as follows:
- Meadville / Bude - a 4.7 mile route along Main Street north of U.S. 84 through Meadville and Old U.S. 84 south of U.S. 84 through Bude.
- Monticello - 6.7 miles along Broad Street south of U.S. 84 through Monticello.
- Silver Creek - a 4.3 mile loop north of U.S. 84 along Southern Avenue.
- Prentiss - 3.8 miles along an older arterial bypass around the east side of the town. MS 184 overlaps with MS 13.
- Collins - 2.8 miles south of U.S. 84 along Main Street
- Powers / Cleo - 3.9 miles along a rural section of Highway 184 south of U.S. 84
- Waynesboro - 5.2 miles south of the U.S. 84 expressway along Azalea Drive to U.S. 45. The route spurs one mile northeast from U.S. 45 to a dead end beside U.S. 84 via Central Road.
|What was mainline U.S. 84 in 2004 became MS 184 with the completion of the Monticello bypass in Lawrence County. MS 184 intersects MS 27 south of a diamond interchange with the realignment of U.S. 84 west of Monticello. Photo taken 06/12/04.|
|Mississippi 27 was also realigned in the early 2000s, shifting west of Monticello along a bypass and hurricane evacuation route leading northward to Interstate 55 and Vicksburg. Photo taken 06/12/04.|
