Hanshaw Road in Ocean Springs closing for two months starting in February

The City of Ocean Springs is in for a rude awakening on the roads at the beginning of February.

Over the weekend, an engineering team broke a sewer main on Hanshaw Road while collecting soil samples.

Due to the break, Hanshaw Road will close February 1st and will remain closed for approximately eight weeks while the Jackson County Utility Authority makes the repair.

This specific road is quite a busy one for the City of Discovery because it connects U.S. 90 to Old Spanish Trail.

With Ocean Springs Middle School sitting at the corner of Hanshaw Road and Old Spanish Trail, the traffic due to the closure will affect parents and bus drivers in the morning and the afternoon. City of Ocean Springs Project Manager Sarah Harris said, “As this is a well-traveled road, during this closure… please be prepared to take the time to map out your route using the detours provided. We will offer multiple detour routes, one using 57 and also another one using Parks Road, but keep in mind you can also use Ocean Springs Road for this detour.”

The road closure will begin February 1st.
