Moss Point To Build $1 Million Boardwalk

Construction will soon begin on a $1 million riverfront boardwalk in Moss Point. The one-thousand-500-foot lighted walkway is among projects that city officials say will help attract businesses and tourist to the city's waterfront.

Officials say the plan also calls for two beaches, saying the water is one of the city's biggest assets.

The project is part of a 1996 waterfront master plan funded by a grant from the Mississippi Tidelands Trust Fund program. The anchor of the project is Pelican Landing Conference Center at Mississippi 613.
