Cruisin' traffic clogs Highway 90

It's Monday and parts of Highway 90 already look like a parking lot. Westbound traffic in Gulfport between Cowan Road and Centennial Plaza is barely moving. Classic car owners are trying to register their vehicles for Cruisin' the Coast. Because registration is at the old VA property, traffic is tied up.

Cruisin the Coast organizers expect 8,000 car owners to register for this annual October event.  If those estimates are accurate, they will smash previous records.

If you don't need to be on Highway 90, you're advised to find another way to get around town.
