A milestone meeting in Sunkist, Ancient Oaks neighborhoods

City leaders and representatives of Restore Biloxi, the city’s $355 million infrastructure repair and replacement program, will be meeting with residents of the Sunkist and Ancient Oaks neighborhoods next week to provide residents with information about work scheduled to begin soon in their neighborhood.

The project is the first of the Restore Biloxi initiative to begin construction. The Sunkist and Ancient Oaks work will involve replacing water lines, sanitary sewer lines and storm drains, as well as repairing or replacing the streets, curbs and sidewalks affected by the construction.

Residents can learn more about the work on Tuesday, May 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the Sunkist Country Club, where representatives of HNTB and contractor S.H. Anthony will be on hand to answer questions. Contact information for S.H. Anthony has also been sent to residents who live on or near the construction zone.

“We’re following through on what we said we were going to do,” Mayor A.J. Holloway said, “and that is to communicate with residents on the front end, to let them know what’s going to be happening, when it’s going to be happening and how it’s going to affect them.”

Holloway said other meetings will held in neighborhoods throughout the city as contracts are let for work.
