BAY ST. LOUIS — Dredging has begun on the Bay St. Louis Harbor and Marina project
The Sea Coast Echo reports a barge began dredging sand this week from the Mississippi Sound about 500 yards from the foot of Main Street.
The dredging is the first phase of the $22 million harbor project. City officials hope the dredging will be complete within 60 days.
The harbor/marina is expected to be capable of holding up to 168 boats, which will range from 20 to 60 feet in length.
City officials say about 150,000 cubic yards of sand will be dredged. The city will use the dredged sand to build the parking lot for the harbor and also replenish beach-front areas.
