Biloxi Police warn drivers to avoid Hwy 90


BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Police are warning drivers to avoid Highway 90 Saturday night. Most of the intersections turning north off of Highway 90 are barricaded. Police say people can turn north on White Avenue.

Traffic is moving slowly along pockets of Highway 90 from Debuys Road to Casino Row near I-110 in Biloxi.
