U.S. 90 Reopens Saturday in Two Coastal Mississippi Cities

Beginning this weekend, motorists will be able to travel on U.S. Highway 90 in Biloxi and Long Beach, Mississippi.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation announced that parts of the highway will reopen to traffic at ten o'clock Saturday morning. The beachside highway is now open to two-lane traffic in Gulfport and Pass Christian.

In Biloxi, two lanes of traffic will open from Gulfport to Interstate 110; the highway will remain closed in east Biloxi. Two lanes will be open for the full length of Long Beach.

U.S. 90 has been closed because of severe damage caused Hurricane Katrina on August 29. The hurricane washed away parts of the roadbed.
