Roadwork Continues In Jackson County

Mississippi Department of Transportation engineers say two big road projects on the Gulf Coast are near completion. District construction engineer Melinda McGrath says the widening of U-S 90 on a stretch in Ocean Springs should be finished within three weeks. And McGrath says a new, 48 million dollar high-rise bridge in Pascagoula is expected to open in September.

Some Ocean Springs business owners are happy to hear about the U-S 90 project winding down. They say the road construction work has hurt their businesses.
