The Economic Development Administration (EDA) has awarded the City of Corinth approximately $4.1 million dollars in grant money to be put toward an approximate $5.1 million dollar drainage infrastructure improvements project. The project area is  located near the center of the City just North of Shiloh Road between Elam’s Creek and Phillip’s Creek. Roadways in which drainage infrastructure improvements will be located in part include: Hickory Road, Oak Lane, Magnolia Road, Shiloh Road, Polk Street, Washington Street, and Tishomingo Street.  The project will consist of major drainage culvert improvements, ditch improvements, and detention pond installations to assist in reducing the effects of rainfall events that cause localized flooding in the area. The project timeline for the design and implementation of the improvements will occur over the next year or so.
