Project to make Veterans Avenue pedestrian friendly begins

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Biloxi public works crews are in the middle of a $120,000 project to improve sidewalks and drainage on Veterans Avenue. Crews are replacing the sidewalks on the east side of the street from Highway 90 to Pass Road.

They are also replacing the driveway for the fire station and putting a drain underneath. The fire chief says without the drain, over time, the earth underneath the old one became compromised, and there was concern about it possibly causing major damage under the weight of the trucks.

Biloxi public works crews will continue making drainage improvements along Veterans Avenue from the fire station down to Highway 90.
