City seeks input on plans for CSX access road

The City of Biloxi will host a community engagement meeting on Aug. 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the Biloxi Community Development Department auditorium 676 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. to discuss the proposed federally-funded construction of an east-west roadway north of the CSX railway in east Biloxi.

The two-lane roadway, which would be immediately north of the CSX railway, would be 30-feet wide and run from Reynoir Street to Oak Street.  The need for the roadway is being driven by the planned closure of several railway crossings in east Biloxi, including crossings at Dorries and Holley streets.

The city is asking those interested to attend the public meeting to offer comments on the proposal.

Those in need of special accommodations to participate in the meeting should contact city Federal Programs Manager Susan Pickich, at or 228-435-6269 at least 48 hours before the meeting.
