The Jackson, MS wastewater treatment plant lies immediately to the east of Interstate 55, this curve is called the Waterworks Curve.
The curve consists of winding roadway in both the north and southbound lanes of Interstate 55.

The area also quickly changes in elevation and crosses under a bridge. In the southbound lanes vehicles merge in from Woodrow Wilson Drive.
Often wrecks that occur on this curve are caused by simple factors:
Failure to merge properly;
Failure to yield the right of way;
Failure to remain in your lane.
