Right of way acquisition for Interstate 269 can begin now that state transportation officials have released appraisal maps for the route of I-269 from I-55 in Hernando eastward to Mississippi Highway 305 near the Lewisburg community.

Mississippi Department of Transportation District Engineer Richard Allen says the right-of-way process on I-269 is just beginning.

Allen says personnel will start getting price comparisons on property in the area including a history of the past few years. Then, he says then landowners will be made an offer and the process begins.
