OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

For the next 30 days two way traffic will be permitted seven days a week on Front Beach Drive in Ocean Springs so officials can see how well it works.

The board of aldermen approved that recommendation made by Ocean Springs Police Chief Mark Dunston. Dunston said one way traffic was permitted on weekends because at one point, Front Beach was a high density area.

However, he said that is no longer the case.

Chief Dunston said one way traffic was confusing to tourists and boaters were having difficulty launching. The chief said two way traffic will begin at Porter Avenue and Front Beach Drive to Jackson Avenue and Front Beach Drive.
