New Boat Launch in the Works for Biloxi

A new boat launch is in the works for east Biloxi.
As part of the Deer Island Restoration Project, a $100,000 grant was awarded to get the project going. It will serve as an additional launch in east Biloxi for recreational fishermen and tourists. The project hopes to alleviate some of the overcrowding of surrounding boat launches.
Windy Swetman III, Harrison County supervisor, District 1, said, “ If we have more opportunities for access, it will make it easier for recreational boaters and tourists to access the Mississippi Sound and hopefully encourage for more recreational boating and fishing along our natural resources here in South Mississippi.”
The next step toward the new boat launch is to pinpoint the location and then start site work for construction.
