Mayor: All post-Katrina infrastructure work complete south of railroad

GULFPORT — Mayor George Schloegel told the city council that Gulfport’s infrastructure work in the area south of the railroad tracks is now finished, closing the books on $70.3 million worth of post-Katrina work in the city’s hardest-hit area.

The work included new water and sewer lines, drainage, repaving the streets and repairing curbs and sidewalks.

Schloegel told the council yesterday the city would celebrate the event with a cookout April 10.

The Sun Herald reports a special marker in remembrance of Katrina will also be unveiled at the corner of 15th Street and 20th Avenue.
