Bayou View Park Walking Track under repair

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The walking track area of Bayou View Park in Gulfport looks a bit like a construction zone. That's because the City of Gulfport is repairing a bridge along the track.

Gulfport Department of Leisure Services Director David D'Aquilla said it's a $50,000 improvement project. Crews are replacing the bridge with composite material and reinforcing the bulkhead as well as making repairs to the walking track. He said the goal of the project is to make the walking area safer and put in materials to extend life of bridge in the future.

The repairs are expected to take up to three weeks to complete.
