HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
Tractors, 18 wheelers and crews with pitch forks and garbage bags are all that is allowed on Beach Boulevard in Hancock County right now.
Security is parked next to barricades from Washington Avenue in Bay St. Louis to Lakeshore Road.
Hancock County Emergency Management Director Brian Adam said, "The beach road has been closed for a while, so we are still asking people to stay off of it and don't go in the water because both the beach and the water is closed and boulevard."
Crews are working long, hard hours in the heat to clear the mess Isaac left behind.
"We are hoping anywhere from ten to 15 days, it's a lot of stuff out there," Adam said.
The company in charge of hauling off the more than 22 tons of dead swamp rats is expected to wrap up its work sometime Saturday, clearing the way for other work to begin.
"A lot of the nutria were mixed in with the debris and you have to have the nutria separate from the debris, because it's a different situation." Adam said.
Friday, crews began work clearing the roads for Morreale Construction crews, who are working to clean the beaches.
Randy Konenn with Morreale Construction said, "We started at the slowest end, the hardest area to get. So as we progress down the line, maybe it will pick up yardage wise for us. We are going to work hard at it."
Crews will be out every day from 6am until 9pm until the work is complete.
"It's a mess, it's a disaster in our county and we are going to do the best we can to clean it up," Konenn said.
But until crews are finished, everyone is asked to be mindful.
"Let the cleanup crews get out there and do their job and hopefully we will have the beach open shortly," Adam said.
Beach Boulevard is open from Washington Street in Bay St. Louis to Highway 90 and from Lakeshore Road to the Silver Slipper Casino.
