"Phenomenal" Biloxi Bridge Completely Open: "After 31 months, one week, and two days, Biloxi and Ocean Springs have been reconnected, by a $338 million concrete marvel. The federal government paid for the replacement roadwork, just like it paid for the $283 million bridge that reconnects Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis."

Katrina's 28-foot storm surge destroyed the Biloxi Bay Bridge, which connected Biloxi to Ocean Springs.
