GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Long awaited Dedeaux Road widening project will begin next October. That's the word from Gulfport city councilman R. Lee Flowers. An effort to widen the point 6 mile stretch is now much closer to being completed. 31 properties that sit on Dedeaux have just been acquired. This means that phase 1 of construction can begin, which is the utility relocation phase. That portion of the project is expected to begin in January.
