OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Exercising on the bridge in Ocean Springs is about to get a lot safer

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1swejP9) two security cameras will be installed to watch foot traffic on the Biloxi Bay Bridge.

Ocean Springs is installing the surveillance cameras.

Mayor Connie Moran says the city ordered two surveillance cameras to place near the bridge that will record traffic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One camera, Moran said, will be pointed at steps where walkers enter the pathway. The other camera will point from the pathway to the crest of the bridge.

The cameras cost $10,000, and the money was raised by Women Against Violence Everywhere, a group formed after a Nov. 19, 2014, alleged sexual assault that took place on the bridge.
