It’s big, just not that big

The Bmail published Friday afternoon touting the city’s upcoming work in east Biloxi incorrectly reported the expected price of the work.  The expected price of work is $120 million, not $180 million.

The actual figure will be known Wednesday, April 9, when the city will open bids submitted from interested contractors.

Marvin G. Dalla Rosa, the man overseeing the city’s massive Restore Biloxi infrastructure project, said,  “Throughout the design and bid process for this project, the cost estimate has consistently been $120 million. We stand by that estimate.”
