OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Crews will begin working on $1.2 million sidewalk project in east Ocean Springs to help make the city more walkable.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dSqWhW) city, county and state officials gathered Tuesday morning to celebrate the groundbreaking of the project.

Beginning in mid-October, construction workers will be improving sidewalks, building new ones, installing a walkable bridge and putting in a new crosswalk. The work is expected to continue for the next six months into early spring.

The project covers three miles, running from the Greyhound Stadium all the way to Ocean Springs Middle School. Officials say the area is badly in need of sidewalks for people who walk their children to school and for residents who jog and bike.

During the project, at times traffic will be reduced to one-lane.
