OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Landmark Contracting says it can repair the damaged sidewalks on Front Beach in Ocean Springs for $46,000.
If the Ocean Springs Board of Aldermen approve a contract with Landmark at next week's meeting, sidewalk repairs can begin September 1 and be finished by October 1.
A 267 foot section of sidewalk along Front Beach got washed out by a combination of recent rains and strong wave action. Engineers determined the walkway wasn't designed to withstand the waves crashing into it.
A new sidewalk will be connected to the existing seawall. That will provide protection for the concrete surface.
Once the sidewalk repairs are finished, Ocean Springs will seek bids on a landscaping plan for the Front Beach area.
