Council receives briefing on Restore Biloxi project

HNTB, the firm the city hired to oversee the $355 million in pending infrastucture work in Biloxi, announced plans to move forward with approvals of contracts for several areas in north and west Biloxi.

The firm, which briefed council members this morning on the status of the project, said 17 local engineering firms have been identified to begin design work for water, sewer and drainage systems and plans were to ask for council approval to begin design work at the council’s March 17 meeting.

The first three areas will include

Area 1: Eagle Point area roads

Area 2: Cedar Lake subdivision, Monie Vista and Holly Hills, Valerie Drive, Bayside Drive, Savannah Estates and Destiny Plantation; and

Area 3: Channel Mark, Big Lake Road,
Melissa Drive, Rodenberg Avenue and Hollywood Hills streets.

Engineers said actual construction could begin on some roadways as soon as five months from once design contracts are approved.

In all more than 100 miles of streets will be involved in the project and will include installation of new water and sewer lines, new drainage, curbing and sidewalks.
