Governor Ronnie Musgrove
Series 2564: Transportation Policy Files, 1993-2003
The series includes approximately 108 computer files compiled by Kelly Riley, Policy Liaison for Governor Ronnie Musgrove, in addition to paper files described in the catalog record. Of particular interest are the files covering the sometimes contentious planning for emergency evacuation of New Orleans residents via Interstate Highway (IH) 59 through a procedure called contraflow or lane reversal. Also included are meeting notes and minutes of the Southern Rapid Rail Transit Commission (of which Gov. Musgrove was a member), PEER Committee reports on the Mississippi Department of Transportation, and the Environmental Impact Study for the IH-69 bridge over the Mississippi River (the Great River Bridge). MDAH staff generated PDF copies of Microsoft Word and Excel files for easier access.
