Security cameras go up on Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - The Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge is about to become much safer. Security cameras installed on the bridge will start monitoring the Ocean Springs side and parking area Thursday evening.

Several organizations and citizens have been calling for the cameras since a woman was sexually assaulted on the bridge in November 2014.

One organization, Women Against Violence Everywhere, spent more than a year collecting the $10,000 needed to purchase two cameras.

A Reach Communications crew from Alabama installed the cameras, and the Ocean Springs Public Works Department furnished a bucket truck to complete the work.
