Breaking Ground on Sewer Project
The City of Waveland will be getting started on three separate infrastructure improvement projects that will address several of the sewer problems in the city.
One of the projects will be replacing the whole sewer system on Meadow Lane. Experienced South Mississippi contractor DNA Underground was awarded the contract for this project. They are very familiar with Waveland sewer and we are lucky to have such a qualified contractor to complete this job.
What's Up, Waveland
Project two will be the Herlihy Street sewer replacement project. DNA Underground will also be the contractor for the abandoning and replacement of the sewer on Herlihy Street. The replacement is the largest of the sewer projects that Waveland will be undertaking.
The third infrastructure improvement project is the 6th Street, Gladstone and Waveland Cutoff project. This will entail lining some manholes, cleaning sewer lines and replacing selected sections of sewer lines. The project has been awarded to Gulf Coast Underground.
All three of these projects will be going on simultaneously and independently of one another. Any personal property (mailboxes, driveways, culverts, grass, etc.) that is damaged during construction will be correctly repaired before the job is complete. As a cost saving measure for taxpayers, Waveland will be separately contracting the paving of the roads once the three projects are complete. Paving the roads after all three sewer projects are completed will save Waveland taxpayers over $50,000.

This past month, two blighted properties were removed, and this month two more blighted properties have been ordered to be removed. The most noticeable property that is going to be removed this month is the former Day’s Frontier building located on Highway 90.
If you have a blighted property you would like Waveland to address, please file a complaint with Waveland Building Department.
Highway 90 Construction
The project will improve safety of traveling on the highway by thinning out the median, making some turning lanes longer and moving lighting to the outside of Highway 90. Several construction crews will be working on the project at one time so traffic on the highway will be congested at times.
The project will take around six months to complete, so allow yourself extra time if you have to travel along Highway 90.
