HARRISON COUNTY — Over the past three months, Harrison County has used two methods of keeping sand off the highway and both worked.
Engineer Dax Alexander and Sand Beach director Chuck Loftis told Harrison County supervisors that in the area of beach between Menge and Troutman in Long Beach and Pass Christian, workers removed sand from the seawall and also used fencing and sea grass.
From March through May, there were 100 yards of sand that had to be removed from that area by Sand Beach employees or the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
Last December, The Sun Herald reports the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved allowing the county to remove 30,000 yards of sand, which lowered the profile of the beach and kept sand off U.S. Highway 90.
