Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on three different infrastructure improvement projects, the progress against blighted properties and road construction on Hwy 90.
During the construction of this project, DNA Underground will do their very best to accommodate Meadow Lane residents’ ability to access their house as they please. The one request Waveland asks is for all Meadow Lane residents to have their trash on the curb by 7 a.m. Tuesday and Friday so that Waste Management can pick up the garbage before daily construction on the street begins.
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.

City of Waveland has ramped up addressing blighted properties over the last several months. The building department, led by Dave Draz and Josh Hayes, has been addressing dozens of projects since the beginning of the year.
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
If you have driven on Highway 90 lately, you have noticed the beginning stages of construction. This Highway 90 project is 100% funded by Mississippi Department of Transportation and it is going to address traffic safety from the Waveland city limit all the way to the Bay Bridge.
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.
