Supervisors to request 'scenic byway' designation for Hwy 90

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Highway 90 may soon receive a special designation in Harrison County.  The Board of Supervisors on Monday agreed to send an application to M-DOT requesting the beachfront highway be declared a "scenic byway."

Several cities in the county have already requested that designation for the busy roadway.

The "scenic byway" declaration will allow the county to apply for grant money that could be used for landscaping or other enhancements and improvements along Highway 90.
