Two CSX crossings are closing soon; other news and notes

The city’s years-long plan to close rail crossings in East Biloxi will take a major step next week when crossings at Dorries and Nixon streets will permanently close as a new connector road parallel to the CSX railway nears completion.

The city’s plan is to eventually close as many as six of the 21 crossings in the two-mile stretch between Keesler and Point Cadet. In all, there are 29 in the eight miles of railway in Biloxi.

Today’s Biloxi A to Z report includes a view of the new two-lane roadbed between Dorries and Oak streets. Also in the seven-minute report: the latest on COVID-19 cases and vaccinations and a preview of Tuesday’s City Council meeting. You’ll also hear the February lineup for BTV, which includes “A City within a City Part Two,” and new episodes of “Biloxi Cooks!” and “Storytime with Gumbo Kelly.”
