Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge Ready To Re-Connect The Coast

This Thursday the Coast will take another major step forward in its recovery from Hurricane Katrina.

The destruction of the Biloxi-Ocean Springs bridge was felt by thousands of us here in South Mississippi.

When the two cities are re-linked with the opening of the bridge, it will be easier for all of us to get around creating a shorter commute.

Also, hopefully it will give an economic boost to many of the businesses located near the bridge.

While the opening of one lane in each direction will be great. We look forward to the day when all lanes are open on this bridge and the Bay St. Louis Bridge.

For the first time in over two years the entire coast will be linked again as one community. Something we all should be thankful for.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
