Biloxi agrees to take over construction and costs to repair concrete outside of MGM Park

The Shuckers have been playing ball at MGM Park for a month now and over 20,000 fans have been into the stadium.
Now, Yates Construction, the Shuckers team, and the city are starting to see areas where construction is needed to accommodate pedestrians as they travel into the park. During tonight’s City Council meeting, Biloxi agreed to take over construction and costs to repair concrete outside of the stadium, as well as areas where drainage is needed.
Vincent Creel, Biloxi public affairs manager, says these projects will cost the city between 50-60 thousand dollars but that is a small cost to keeping the Shuckers experience top notch. “We know how important the ingress and egress is for pedestrians going to and from the stadium. We’ve had close to 20,000 people come through the doors over at the stadium, I think maybe a little bit more than that with the games we’ve played. We’re very happy with the success of the stadium,” said Creel.
Creel says construction to the stadium is now expected to be complete the first week of September. It was originally expected to be finished August 4th.
