Portion of Courthouse Rd. in danger of failing

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Gulfport Public Works has closed one lane of Courthouse Road so emergency repairs can begin. Councilman Rusty Walker said the closure impacts the most eastern lane of Courthouse Road, south of Sonic.

"The rain has undermined the road at that area and the road is now in danger of failing," Walker wrote on Facebook Monday.

Walker said work will begin this week to install a new box culvert. Repairs should take a week to ten days to complete. A water line will also have to be relocated so repairs can be made.

"This will cause an outage for businesses at least in the shopping center one day, and a boil notice for at lease two days afterward," wrote Walker. "Public Works is scheduled to coordinate the outage with the businesses in the area."

For more information, call Gulfport Public Works at (228) 868-5700.
