Infrastructure improvements coming in the near future in Biloxi
Recently, parts of Biloxi have seen significant infrastructure upgrades. In the near future West Biloxi could become the newest area to see improvements.
The city’s project in East Biloxi, which total 340 million and included all new water, sewer, and drainage systems, is estimated to be completed within the next year.
At the same time, Biloxi has been working on pushing out water and sewer into areas of Woolmarket that have been under served until now.
Currently, the city has been piecing together infrastructure projects for West Biloxi in anticipation of receiving funding from the state and federal governments. Biloxi Chief Administrative Officer Mike Leonard said, “The area that’s been left behind in West Biloxi really from White Avenue all the way to Debuys Road, that’s West Biloxi. South of the Bay. Here we find the oldest infrastructure in the city now. We’re talking about water pipe that are undersized and have more patches on them than pipe.”
Leonard says the master plan for the West Biloxi plan is expected to be finished in the next 30 days.
Some of the major projects in the area include replacing the other half of the water line in the Tanglewood neighborhood and replacing the Bay Vista well.
