LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - There's another construction project underway at University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Park, but it's not related to post-Katrina rebuilding.
The university is widening the main entrance by adding a turn lane onto Highway 90. The goal is to to ease traffic buildup and to make the area safer.
The next step is to erect stone and stucco walls on both sides of the wider road to enhance the look of the entrance.
Students say the project symbolizes growth on the Long Beach campus, and tonight on WLOX News, Trang Pham Bui will have more on the new project.
