Work planned on Popp’s Ferry bridge

Motorists traveling the Popp’s Ferry Bridge on Tuesday and Wednesday nights will experience traffic slowdowns as repairs are made to the grade at the span of the two-lane bridge.

The city’s Public Works Department plans to limit traffic to one lane from 8 p.m. to as late as midnight both nights. The bridge will accommodate vehicular and marine traffic during the work, but motorists are advised to expect slowdowns.

This week’s “City Desk” webcast, taped earlier today, includes discussions on the issues du jour. Among them: Caillavet Street progress, published reports involving Harrah’s plans in Biloxi, and Friday night’s cermeony honoring Biloxi public safety personnel.
