OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Loggers are working to clear the median of Interstate 10 north of Ocean Springs as part of a $39.5 million interstate widening project.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dDMwXC) the logging has been going on for more than a week along 1.6 miles of the interstate median.

Tall pines and smaller hardwoods were mixed in the dense woods that had grown in the wide median between the eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway.

A spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Transportation explained that the agency decided to clear the median to make it easier for drivers to see ahead in the case of wrecks or traffic snarls along the interstate.
