OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Jackson County will shore-up the eroding seawall and boardwalk along Front Beach in Ocean Springs.

A section of Ocean Springs Front Beach which has been a problem area for years became more so after recent heavy rains washed away nearly all of what little sand was there.

As a result, a section of the beach sidewalk which runs the length of Front Beach is in jeopardy of collapse.

The county will spend $25,000 to $30,000 to bring in 2,500 cubic yards of sand to expand the beach 80 feet out from the sidewalks.

Road Manager Joe O’Neal says the county will likely be replenishing the area again before the end of the year.

The county maintains the beach and the city is responsible for repairing the sidewalk and wall.
