Construction cranes coming down over Margaritaville site
BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The construction cranes are about to be taken down at the site of the stagnant Margaritaville project on Biloxi's Casino Row.
Harrah's executive John Payne called WLOX News Wednesday to let us know that over the next few weeks, the cranes would be disassembled. However, Payne emphasized that his company still intends to find new partners and complete the Margaritaville expansion.
Payne said the idle cranes cost Harrah's $10,000 a month. Since they're not being used, the company determined it would be more cost effective to remove them from the east Biloxi property.
