Infrastructure work coming up in Balmoral, Edgewater area

Residents of the Balmoral and Edgewater Drive area in west Biloxi will be seeing a major infrastructure project getting underway in December, and the result will be new water mains, sewer lines and storm drains as well as replacement of the streets, curbs and sidewalks impacted by the construction work.

The $1.82 million project is part of the city’s $355-million Restore Biloxi Infrastructure Repair Program, and residents can get a briefing on the work during a community meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Donal M. Snyder Sr. Community Center on Pass Road.¬† City representatives will be joined by ¬†program manager HNTB, and contractor Necaise Brothers to answer questions about the project.

The construction will take place primarily along Edgewater Drive, from U.S. 90 to just north of Marshall Road; on Marshall Road, east of Edgewater Drive; and on Balmoral Avenue.

The work will be begin in early December and is scheduled to be completed in December 2015. Some lane closures and periodic short-term interruptions of water service  will be required over the course of the work,  but the contractor will work to give residents advance notice of any interruptions. Residents also can expect to see heavy equipment using the streets in and near construction zones.  Any traffic detours will be clearly marked.

The Balmoral-Edgewater meeting is the latest in a series of community meetings the city has conducted before each of the 14 completed-or-under-construction Restore Biloxi projects. With this project, the city will have about $175 million in Restore Biloxi work either completed or under construction.
