The Mississippi Department of Transportation has presented a $160,000 check to the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast for improvement projects at the Gulf Park campus.

The University Club accepted the check Tuesday in Hardy Hall on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.

The main project will consist of a redesign and construction of sidewalks, gathering areas, a pedestrian bridge, seating, landscaping, lighting and the addition of a Code Blue emergency phone.
