Cruisin’ into the weekend

Biloxi’s casino resorts will host an array of big-name entertainment this weekend to coincide with Cruisin’ the Coast’s final weekend, and Biloxi Police Chief John Miller is reminding motorists to expect slow-moving traffic through the weekend.

Among the headliners you’ll find this weekend: the Beach Boys at the Beau Rivage, George Jones at IP, and more.

“We want everyone to have a great time,” Miller said, “but we want them to have a safe time, too. We’re asking folks to please drive carefully, obey traffic signals and speed limits, and if you may want to consider using Pass Road or other routes to avoid the heavy traffic on Highway 90.”

Police have positioned barricades at points on U.S. 90 to limit left turns or U-turns, if necessary, but Miller didn’t expect any major issues, “other than traffic moving slowly.”
