Lighthouse Visitors Center opening delayed a month

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Biloxi Lighthouse Visitor's Center on Highway 90 will not be opening the end of this month as planned. Biloxi Historic Administrator Bill Raymond says the center will open about a month later, in late June.

Raymond says the water main work that was an addition to the original construction of the center and slowed the project down. He says it was added to keep from having to rip up new sidewalks and landscaping later this summer when that FEMA funded infrastructure project was originally slated to be done.

Raymond says exhibits are also taking longer than expected to construct.
