Downtown Crosswalks Replacement Project

The City of Ocean Springs will begin to replace the crosswalks in the downtown area starting January 2024. The bricks are being replaced due to pedestrian safety reasons. The project will consist of removing the brick crosswalks and replacing them with stamped concrete. 

Delta Construction will begin this project on Monday, January 8, 2024. There are 4 intersections included in this project: Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Government Street, Washington Avenue and Robinson Street, Washington Avenue and Government Street, and Washington Avenue and Porter Avenue.

During construction, only one intersection will be done at a time. The work for each intersection will begin on a Monday. The estimated construction time per intersection will be 3 days. During the work, the intersection will be completely closed and will reopen once complete.

Dates for each intersection:

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Government Street – Monday, January 8-10, 2024
  • Washington Avenue and Robinson Street – Monday, January 22-24, 2024
  • Washington Avenue and Government Street – Monday, January 29-31, 2024
  • Washington Avenue and Porter Avenue – Monday, February 19-21, 2024
