Stretch of HWY 90 in front of Mississippi Aquarium to close again tonight

The final round of what has been a string of overnight closures on Highway 90 takes place tonight as work continues to build the Coast Transit Authority tram, pedestrian, and bicycle bridge that will eventually link the Mississippi Aquarium with Jones Park.

Crews have been installing girders and supports for the bridge piece-by-piece which requires them to shut down all lanes of Highway 90 near the aquarium.

So, 90 will be closed in both directions again tonight from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. If you travel that way during those times, you’ll need to take an alternative route.

The entire project is on schedule to be completed by March 2024.
