With the Fourth of July right around the corner, the City of Gulfport has released a traffic plan to ensure the roads do not become overly congested following the fireworks show at Jones Park.
Gulfport PD PIO Sgt. Clayton Fulks said, “Our Fourth of July venting plan will take place after the fireworks show is concluded. Essentially, Highway 49 from Highway 90 to 34th Street will be north and southbound traffic only. We are doing this to move people from the event area as far as 49 as we can, as rapid as we can as safely.”
Sgt. Fulks tells News 25 the venting traffic plan will conclude once traffic levels return to normal.
