OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

A major makeover on a main thoroughfare in Ocean Springs just hit a snag. Work on the Porter Avenue project will be suspended for the next several weeks in order to move a natural gas line. 

Crews discovered the unmarked line last week and halted construction immediately. CenterPoint Energy crews must now move the line to avoid conflict with water and sewer services. 

The utility work is expected to take about three to four weeks to complete. Road and sidewalk improvements will resume once they are finished.
