Officials want loop to connect casinos, beach with Back Bay

BILOXI — City officials want to complete the long-awaited loop around East Biloxi that would link the casinos and the beach with Back Bay.

The Sun Herald reports the City Council voted to support an initiative to connect Back Bay Boulevard with U.S. Highway 90.

David Nichols, the city’s chief administrative officer, says he’s looking for state and federal money to pay for the project.

Nichols says the city has long planned to finish the connection, with the potential to open the area to more development.
