BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - City workers have reopened Hwy 90.

Both westbound lanes of traffic were closed from Oak to Main Street on Thursday, July 22. The westbound traffic was diverted to the northern, eastbound lane. Two-way traffic was maintained but reduced to one lane each way.

Reports say workers were boring under the street when they hit an obstruction. The road had an almost 10-inches rise on the surface near Holley Street.

This portion of the highway was reopened around 8 pm on Thursday.
