Sidewalk Construction Begins at CT Switzer Drive in Biloxi

Construction kicked off on CT Switzer Drive in Biloxi for a new sidewalk.
It will span 10 feet wide and 3,000 feet long. The walkway will connect CTA bus stops along Switzer Drive which will stretch from Eisenhower Drive to Debuys Road. The sidewalk also links Edgewater Mall, Walmart and hundreds of nearby apartments on the south side of CT Switzer Drive.
Biloxi resident Christine Roberts regularly walks the area. She tells News 25 the sidewalk will not only be convenient for her, but also much safer than walking on uneven grass. “Well, I walk around here a lot and sometimes when you’re walking on the grass, there’s no sidewalk and all. There’s potholes and stuff, especially when it rains. It would be nice to have a sidewalk to walk on. I think a lot of people would appreciate it. It’s been a long time and it’s about time we have one now.”
The project costs $360,000 using federal, state and local funds. The work is expected to be completed in July.
