The following streets will be closed:
-Washington Avenue (from Porter Ave. to Robinson St.)
-Government Street (from Washington Ave. to Handy Ave.)
Southbound traffic on Washington Avenue from US-90 will be re-routed via Robinson Street. Roads will reopen at the discretion of the Ocean Springs Police Department. As always, it is at the discretion of local law enforcement as to whether it is in the interest of the public’s safety to add or remove a barricade.
