Infrastructure two years in the making for the City of Biloxi brings good news to those who frequently travel Highway 90.
The lane closure on Highway 90 south of the Biloxi City Cemetery is expected to end on Friday.
Workers are pulling a 16 inch, 750 foot pipe through a tunnel that was 12 feet below the ground south of the cemetery and on the north side between Morrison Avenue and Azalea Drive.
The one million dollar project is federally funded and will benefit those who have to drive to that side of town on a regular basis. Vincent Creel with the City of Biloxi said, “It’s impacting about 41,000 cars on an average day. You’ve got a lot of Keesler traffic going that route. So, we are very happy that it is scheduled to be completed on Friday and all lanes should be open for the weekend.”
This, among other phases of work, brings the city one step closer to restoring Biloxi.
