Stretch of HWY 90 near MS Aquarium to close again tonight

The start of another round of overnight closures tonight on Highway 90 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 which requires them to shut down all lanes of Highway 90 near the aquarium. 90 will be closed in both directions tonight from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

If you travel that way during those times, you’ll need to take an alternate route.

The CTA tram overpass will be pedestrian and bicycle friendly. The $18 million project is being funded by a DOT and Federal Transit Administration grant with a local match by the City of Gulfport.

Malouf Construction is the contractor and we’re told the project is on schedule to be completed by March 2024.
