BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Work will soon begin on covering a few of those unsightly storm drain pipes on our coast beaches. The plans unveiled by the governor are certainly a major improvement over what we have now.

Those exposed pipes will be covered with a concrete walkway with an observation deck at the end. The first three will be in high profile locations near the I-110 loop and at the east end of Biloxi Beach.

We have more than 200 of those ugly drain pipes. We have a long way to go, but we applaud the move to start improving the look of the coast’s greatest natural asset, our beaches.

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