Gautier-Vancleave exit overlay work complete

Here's good news for some Gulf Coast motorists. Overlay work around the Gautier-Vancleave Road exit in Gautier has been completed.

Southern District Commissioner Wayne Brown said both sides of the interstate had been reduced to one-lane at night for several weeks. Brown said that while the process after hours is more expensive than construction during daylight hours, it is justified by the number of vehicles that are not held up by daytime construction.

Brown said nighttime construction costs can run about 10 to 20 percent more because of higher salaries for workers, emergency safety personnel and lighting.
