Supervisors approve major harbor improvements

OCEAN SPRINGS — The county-owned Ocean Springs Harbor is about to get a $3.5-million structural makeover that also will include quaint street lights, landscaping, a wide sidewalk and aesthetics that city leaders requested.

The Sun Herald reports funding for the project will come to Jackson County from FEMA for repairing Katrina damage at the harbor and from leftover repair money from another waterfront project.

The county Board of Supervisors approved plans for the harbor improvements yesterday.

Nick Worden, with Broadus and Associates, said the entire harbor would get new bulkhead and boardwalks along the water, electrical poles and outlets for boaters and plumbing.
