The project is intended to restore lost recreational opportunities resulting from the Spill and related response actions. This project will enhance recreational shoreline access via the construction of a lighted concrete beachfront pedestrian pathway adjacent to a sand beach in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Project funds will be used to complete a two mile, 10-ft.-wide lighted concrete pathway complete with amenities. This project will fund a portion (8,200 ft.) of the 10-ft. wide promenade, a portion of which has already been constructed.
