Traffic Plan For Next Phase Of Popp’s Ferry Project

The City of Biloxi will begin the next phase of widening Popp's Ferry Road at the end of next week, and the work will require detouring eastbound traffic off a section of Popp's Ferry Road.

Under a traffic plan that takes effect Aug. 9, eastbound traffic on Popp's Ferry Road will be detoured at Jam Lane, where it will be routed onto a new Richard Drive and a new Cedar Lake Road.

Westbound traffic will continue to use Popp's Ferry Road, which will be one-way westbound between Cedar Lake Road and Jam Lane.

Biloxi officials say the detour is necessary for the city to begin five-laning Popp's Ferry Road between Cedar Lake Road and Jam Lane. This $3.8 million phase of the Popp's Ferry Road area traffic improvement project is expected to be completed within a year.
