Stop signs erected on Eisenhower at Rue Petit Bois

Four Stop signs have been installed on Eisenhower Drive at Rue Petit Bois, where Hurricane Isaac destroyed traffic signals.

Public Works Director Richard Sullivan was unsure when the Federal Highway Administration would be able to replace the signals at the intersection.

Sullivan said he thought all other damaged or destroyed traffic signals in Biloxi had been replaced or repaired.

Biloxi has about 60 signalized intersections, a third of which are on U.S. 90.
