Construction begins on Katrina 'high-water' monuments

HANCOCK COUNTY — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun work to install two Gateway Katrina Monuments at the Interstate 10 and Mississippi 43 Interchange in Hancock County.

The $46,500 project was awarded to DCD Construction Inc. of D’Iberville.

The project consists of installing two concrete slabs along the shoulder of I-10 at the Mississippi 43 interchange to mark the water level during Hurricane Katrina. One will be placed in the northwest quadrant and the other in the southeast quadrant. Each will be facing approaching traffic on Mississippi 43. The monuments will each be 15 feet wide and 28 feet long; they will be lighted at night.

The project is expected to take about a month to complete.
