US Highway 90 bridge to open in Mississippi

| Monday, October 15, 2007

The first two lanes on the new U.S. Highway 90 bridge in Mississippi, which connects Biloxi and Ocean Springs, are set to open in less than two weeks.

The $338 million bridge will have six lanes when it’s completed next year.

When the first lanes are opened on Nov. 1, a wreath will be thrown from the bridge into the harbor to commemorate those who died during Hurricane Katrina.
