Fuel farm for boaters coming to Lowry Island


PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) — A waterfront fuel farm is coming to Lowry Island as part of a major redevelopment project.

Boaters now have to float over to Gautier to fill up their tanks.

In May, the city council awarded a $2.8 million contract to Moss Point-based M & D Construction Co. for the second phase of the Lowry Island redevelopment project.

The Mississippi Press reports ( the council last week added $210,115 for the fuel farm and extended work by 42 days.

The project is expected to be complete by Feb. 20.

Most of the funding is coming from Hurricane Katrina-related Community Development Block Grant funds.

This second phase of work includes rehabilitation of a boat launch, trees, lighting, fill material, ramps on sidewalks and paving, gravel and asphalt work, among other features.
