GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The state port’s Board of Commissioners has reaffirmed its decision to award a $44 million construction contract to Necaise Bros. Construction Co., despite a protest filed by W.C. Fore, who was low bidder on the project.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1RkmC9V) Necaise is completing the first phase of construction at a cost of about $68 million on the west side of the West Pier. James Necaise said Thursday that work should be completed in mid-July.

He expects to begin work in early April under the new contract, which moves construction to the pier’s east side.

Fore also was low bidder on both the pier construction contracts, but the port staff found deficiencies in his bids.
