Beachfront Promenade for Tourists - (Pascagoula, MS) $500,000

Tourists visiting the beach in Pascagoula will soon have a ten-foot wide lit walking path, benches, and landscaping to enjoy, courtesy of the American taxpayer. The $4 million promenade project, which received $500,000 from the 2010 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development funding bill, will be adjacent to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' ongoing $12 million beach expansion project, pictured above. The effort is part of the city's plans to implement the "Complete Streets" initiative, aimed at "creating a more pedestrian and bike friendly" community.Wastebook 2010
