Hwy 90 construction ending soon

It's been a long road, but the light is now at the end of the tunnel. We're talking about the Highway 90 restoration project in Harrison County.

The federal government paid the entire 92 million dollar price tag to rebuild the major thoroughfare from bridge to bridge. For more than a year, we have dealt with slow moving traffic as the road was reconstructed. But the end result will have been worth waiting for.

The new Highway 90 will be better than ever before, with synchronized traffic lights, new curbing and new turning bays. It was a monumental effort to rebuild the beach highway, after Hurricane Katrina destroyed most of it. Three major contractors have worked very hard to bring the road back, and the workers are to be commended for their dedication and hard work.

And, we also praise the drivers who have displayed great patience and resilience in dealing with the delays of the past year. But when all is said and done, the new Highway 90 will mean smooth sailing for the people who use it and our wish is that everyone who drives Highway 90 drive safely and courteously.

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