Coast shelters won’t be completed by upcoming hurricane season
Published: April 3,2012
JACKSON COUNTY — Jackson County’s three new emergency shelters won’t be ready before hurricane season begins.
The Mississippi Press reports architect Walter “Buzzy” Bolton told supervisors yesterday the Hurley, Vancleave and St. Martin shelters will now likely be ready in July. A variety of construction delays have plagued the federally funded projects.
The 10,000-square-foot shelters will have eight-inch-thick concrete walls, be able to withstand 200-mph winds and will cost $3 million each.
