GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

We keep getting questions about when Gulfport will actually repair its hurricane damaged piers. Here's what city spokesman Chris Vignes told WLOX News about that project.

The notice to proceed on the repairs to Combs Pier, Urie Pier, Moses Pier and Westside Pier will be Friday, Feb. 27.

Vignes told us work will begin with two crews. One crew will do demolition work at each site. The other crew will begin construction.

The work starts on Ken Combs Pier at the foot of Courthouse Road.

According to Vignes, the contractor may work on multiple pier locations at the same time, but the Combs Pier will actually be repaired first.

Gulfport leaders say the pier repairs will be completed by Memorial Day.

Remember, all four piers sustained damaged back in 2012 when Hurricane Isaac's winds and storm surge crashed into South Mississippi.
