Emergency repairs underway

You may have noticed construction crews on the beach at the foot of Cowan Road in Gulfport. There are actually several different projects happening at that location. Crews are making some emergency repairs to the storm water outfall structure located there.

Harrison County Sand Beach Director Chuck Loftis said part of a concrete wall collapsed during a recent heavy rain. Another project at that site involves the construction of a pedestrian bridge, that will cross over the concrete drainage structure. And, finally there's a CIAP funded project that will place a covering over that open drainage outfall.
