Improvements to the Longleaf Trace

Formerly Mississippi Central Railroad

Shows, Dearman & Waits was pleased to assist the Pearl & Leaf Rivers Rails to Trails Recreational District with repairs to the wooden railroad trestles (bridges) from the previous Mississippi Central Railroad.  The deterioration of the wooden piling and caps had reduced the carrying capacity of the bridges and limited the use.  The project replaced piling, caps and girders and provides a safe route for pedestrians, cyclists and others to use the Longleaf Trace.
