Ocean Springs fishing pier under construction

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Work has started on a new fishing pier in Ocean Springs. Katrina destroyed the old fishing spot just north of the Highway 90 bridge.

The new fishing pier will have concrete pilings, and a treated lumber boardwalk. It will also have lighting and four covered pavilions. The pier will be 1300 feet long and should be finished by late spring.

The $1.5 million price tag is being picked up by FEMA.
