Stretch of Cedar Lake Road to close in Biloxi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Drivers who use Popp's Ferry Road may have to find another route later this week.

Biloxi city officials said a 200-foot section of Cedar Lake Road will be closed to traffic, just south of the Popp's Ferry Road intersection.

The closure will be in effect from Wednesday through Friday. It's part of the upcoming road widening project along Popp's Ferry Road.

The section of Cedar Lake will be shut down on Wednesday at 8 a.m. Crews hope to re-open the road by Friday at 5 p.m.

Contractors are installing new sewer mains that will tie into the new stretch of Popp's Ferry Road.

Drivers who use Popp's Ferry Road in that area can either take Lamey Street or Jam Lane as a detour. They can then enter Cedar Lake from its southern end.
