City News and Events
For those traveling to Oxford this weekend, please be aware that there have been several changes on key roadways entering town. The Mississippi Department of Transportation has completed construction on the new interchange at Jackson Avenue and Highway 6. Traffic approaching Oxford from Batesville will make a left exit at a new signal between Thacker Road and Jackson Avenue. The Oxford Police Department has created an excellent video that explains how to maneuver the interchange. We encourage you to view and share it as this type of interchange is new to North Mississippi.
The City of Oxford has also activated a new signal at the intersection of Highway 30 and Oxford Commons Boulevard (across from the drive to Stout’s Carpet/North East Power). Slow down as you approach Oxford from New Albany and be prepared to stop at the signal.
Be prepared for heavy traffic entering Oxford on Saturday, especially in the one hour prior to kickoff. Expect there to be some delays and try to allow extra time. Also, remember that it will take at least 2 hours after the game to get out of the City limits. Be patient and be courteous to fellow drivers.
For easiest access to the game, use the City of Oxford's Gameday Shuttle Service.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation also has several resources available to help provide up-to-date road conditions and travel information. We encourage you to visit their site for real-time video of various intersections in town and other information.
MS 811 and the City of Oxford are working together to offer training on recent changes to the Mississippi Dig Law. The 1 hour seminar is free to the public and will be held at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, July 28th at the Oxford Conference Center, 102 Ed Perry Boulevard. No registration is required.
Oxford’s first-ever Complete Streets pop-up project has transformed University Avenue for the month of July. The temporary project gives us the opportunity to try out a new streetscape with bike lanes, crosswalks and more to find out what works and what doesn’t.
Your feedback is important. Please take the short survey here to let us know your experience after trying the new design:
