Ocean Springs Small Craft Harbor Boat Launch Now Open
The Ocean Springs Small Craft Harbor is open for recreational use but only on a temporary basis for now.
Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists are encouraged to continue using caution in the area since some of the elements of the project are still underway. They are also asked to respect any barricades and traffic control devices around the harbor area.
The road and boat launch will be temporarily closed during weekdays to allow for some finishing touches. Ocean Springs Harbor Master Danny Jalanivich said, “We’re putting the bumper guards on so when you tie your boat up you won’t get hung up on the pier. Then we’ve got the final travel coat of pavement to do but we’re not going to do that until we get through with the second phase so we can tie it all in at one time.”
The second phase includes the paving of Harbor Road to the north. Officials say construction should be completed within the next few months.
