Mississippi Highway 350 (MS 350) is a highway in extreme northern Mississippi. Its western terminus is at MS 2 near Corinth. The road travels near the Tennessee state line to its eastern terminus at MS 25. The route was designated in 1981, and no significant changes have been made since.

Route description[edit]

MS 350 is located in northeastern Alcorn and northern Tishomingo counties.[2] In 2012, Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) calculated as many as 2,900 vehicles traveling east of County Road 159 (CR 159), and as few as 1,500 vehicles traveling east of CR 363.[3] All of the road is maintained by MDOT.[1] MS 350 is not included as a part of the National Highway System (NHS), a network of highways identified as being most important for the economy, mobility and defense of the nation.[4] MS 350 is legally defined in Mississippi Code § 65-3-3.[5]

MS 350 starts at a T-intersection with MS 2 and travels eastward. The route goes through small groups of trees, and turns northeast east of CR 154. The road enters a larger forest and curves back east two miles (3.2 km) later. There, MS 350 was less than 1,000 feet (300 m) from the Tennessee state line. The two-lane road intersects a few roads leading to the state border, such as Kendrick Road. MS 350 soon enters Tishomingo County, curving around some hills. It remains parallel from the state line, until at CR 375, where it starts to travel southeast. The route temporarily travels east at CR 355, before heading southeast again. MS 350 ends about one mile (1.6 km), at a T-intersection with MS 25.[6]

History[edit]

In 1974, a paved road was built from MS 2 to the Alcorn–Tishomingo county line.[7][8] It was later extended to MS 25 in 1981, and was designated as MS 350 in the same year.[9][10] No significant changes have been made to the route since.[2][10]
