Neel-Schaffer Continues to Help Biloxi Rebuild, Post-Katrina
The City of Biloxi Infrastructure Repair Program (IRP) is a replacement of all City-owned facilities that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina program and includes the replacement of drainage, water, sewer, roadway, and sidewalks. The project is being funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Neel-Schaffer led a coordinated effort to design the Beauvoir Phase 2 (BEA2) portion of the IRP, which has a project boundary on US 90 between Edgewater Mall and Brady Drive as well as various cross streets in the project area between US 90 and the CSX Railroad. The project includes 3,900 feet of drainage pipe, 12,900 feet of sewer pipe including two major pump stations, 11,000 feet of water pipe, and 7,100 feet of roadway. The design will require right-of-way and easements to be acquired by the City.
The project includes the design of three additional drainage outfalls in the Mississippi Sound to aid the City in storm water management.
