Harrison County approves Landon Road dirt pit

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) – Harrison County supervisors voted 4-1 to allow a 100 acre dirt pit near Landon Road.  That was the last thing Landon Road residents wanted to hear.

They got signatures from more than 200 people who opposed trucks constantly hauling dirt up and down their two lane road. Yet, Harrison County's planning and zoning commission approved plans for the creation of a 100 acre dirt pit just north of Interstate 10.  And on Monday morning, the board of supervisors did the same thing.

Steve Phillips covered the dirt pit story. He'll have updates on WLOX and WLOX.com.
