City re-opens nearly all U.S. 90 access points

Biloxi Police and Public Works crews today re-opened all but a handful of the more than 50 neighborhood streets that had been barricaded at U.S. 90 since Hurricane Katrina struck on Aug. 29.

Those that remain barricaded: Eisenhower Drive, Acacia Avenue, Chalmers Drive, Caldwell Avenue, G.E. Ohr Street and Kuhn Street.

Intersections had been closed for such reasons as inoperable street lighting or traffic signals, collapsed drainage lines or debris-removal efforts.

Traffic engineers will re-open the remaining intersections as conditions permit.
