City of Hattiesburg Pushes To Get 4th Street Lawsuit Dropped

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The City of Hattiesburg plans to request that the lawsuit of 17 plaintiffs be dismissed.

The lawsuit is over the road project on Fourth Street that began back in April.

Business owners and tenants say they've lost an excessive amount of money since it began.

The city denies most of the claims.

Defense attorney L. Clark Hicks says the city plans to request that the lawsuit be tossed.

""The businesses will have the opportunity to respond," Hicks said. "The papers will be submitted to the judge for consideration and after that the period of time the judge will make a decision."

Once the road project is finished, Fourth Street will have three lanes instead of two.

There will also be a sidewalk to the added south side, along with a median from Main Street down to Hutchinson Avenue.
