US Highway 90 Widening - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

US Highway 90 Widening

Posted: Updated:
OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. -

The Mississippi Department of Transportation is in the initial stages of a planned widening of U.S. Highway 90 to six lanes from Ocean Springs to Gautier.

 MDOT engineer Kelly Castleberry said on Thursday that surveyors have begun surveying the roughly 11 mile stretch of U.S. 90 -- the only area of U.S. 90 not already six lanes.

 Castleberry says there is no time frame as yet for when the project will begin and the cost of the project will be determined by the plan which is ultimately selected.

 Once begun, Castleberry estimates the project would take 18-24 months to complete, although he noted that the project would be done in sections.
