Update on Biloxi infrastructure projects

Work continues this morning on Biloxi’s major infrastructure project.

Business owners, residents and those who travel Howard Avenue between Porter Avenue and Hopkins Boulevard can see the signs of road working coming to that area, as crews prepare for the installation of a major sewer line in that area.

Meanwhile, a few streets are left lacking a base course of asphalt, including Forrest Avenue (north of Division Street), Benachi, and Cuevas (south of Division Street).

On Forrest Avenue, crews are completing the last bit of sewage and storm drain work, which should be completed by Thanksgiving. Then, the road crew will install the road base and do preparations for the base course of asphalt in that area.

Sidewalk and restoration work will coincide with the installation of the road base.

On Benachi, they are installing road base now and working on tying in sewer services to houses – require additional work due to the location of the existing sewer system.

Construction leaders ask drivers in these areas to please use caution as crews are out in the streets and even in manholes for this phase of the project.

Meanwhile, sewage and storm drain work on Cuevas has been completed. Road crews will next move in to install the road base.

On Reynoir, the base course of asphalt has been installed. Right now, workers are following with sidewalk restoration and fencing.
