Drivers going through downtown Biloxi will have to maneuver their way through a construction site. Just in time for Mardi Gras, the city's downtown roads are undergoing a facelift that city officials say is long overdue. The city is redoing key streets in the downtown area in order to better host the thousands of people that will be pounding the pavement during the upcoming Carnival Season. Vincent Creel, the Public Affairs Manager for Biloxi, says, “What you see here in downtown Biloxi should be completed in the next couple of days. The reason it goes so fast is they are replacing asphalt. They don't have to go underneath the street to replace pipes. So, that's what we're doing. You're seeing the face of Mardi Gras come to Biloxi between the reviewing stands and the banners we're putting up on poles, and now this street work.” Biloxi is also looking forward to a major sidewalk replacement program as well as infrastructure to rejuvenate east Biloxi, which was hardest hit during Hurricane Katrina. The city will have a three year, 120 million dollar contract to help the area, the largest in Biloxi history.
