Interstate 310 (I-310) is a proposed auxiliary route of I-10 in Gulfport, Mississippi. It is planned to travel from U.S. Route 90 (US 90) near the Port of Gulfport to I-10.

Route description[edit]

The road is planned to travel from I-10 in the northern part of the city south to US 90 near the Port of Gulfport and Downtown Gulfport. Officials want the highway to be as close as possible to the port so it can be accessed easily.

History[edit]

The highway's designation was at first considered to be I-210 but because the Interstate is going to the port and not going to connect back to I-10 forming a loop, the road was numbered I-310; I-110 was already taken in nearby Biloxi. The design of the highway began in 2005 and the right-of-way acquisitions started in 2006. This put the estimated completion date to 2012. Construction was supposedly started in 2008 but as of 2009 construction had not started. The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) wanted the road to be an elevated freeway like its sister road, I-110.
