City of Biloxi begins construction on new Highway 90 bridge
The superstructure has finally arrived for a new pedestrian bridge in Biloxi.
The bridge will be east of Main Street on Highway 90 just past the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The overpass will connect two new hotels that are currently under construction to places south of Highway 90.
The walkway will connect residents to the Biloxi waterfront, Guice Park, the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor, and the Hard Rock Casino. Vincent Creel with the City of Biloxi said, “This pedestrian bridge will allow them to access the waterfront, access the harbor, access the Hard Rock, access the Beau Rivage. It will help them appreciate in a safe manner how beautiful our Gulf Coast is and how engaging that waterfront is.”
Though no completion date is set, the City of Biloxi expects the bridge to be finished this summer.
