BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Some relief is on the way for many living in the middle of the east Biloxi infrastructure project. Construction crews will begin temporary paving work on several streets in that area Monday.

Warren Paving is expected to apply asphalt to Porter Avenue and Bohn Street, south of Division Street; Division Street, from Porter to Forest Avenue; and Main, Lameuse and Reynoir streets, from Division to Bayview Avenue. The Bohn Street work will stop just south of Division Street because of pending sewer work.

"The issue that we face is to coordinate with the infrastructure contractor, Oscar Renda, to make sure we're going to get the most of this temporary paving," said Mayor Andrew "FoFo" Gilich. "We know residents and businesses want and deserve relief, and that's our goal, within the confines of the existing contact."

55 miles of streets in east Biloxi have been torn up for the project. Warren expects to have the paving completed in several days.

In March, the city of Biloxi had Warren apply temporary paving to sections of Lee, Main, Lameuse, Reynoir, Main and Division streets and Hopkins Boulevard. It took seven days for those seven streets to be paved.
