And the location for an additional east-west traffic corridor is obvious: along the route of the CSX tracks.
As for the expense, we cannot afford not to build it.
The obvious route is not along the CSX tracks and relocating the tracks North of the Interstate is unfair to those of us who have chosen to make our homes here. We do not deserve to lose our homes and our peaceful way of life because the denizens of Gulfport and Biloxi (mainly the casinos and The Sun Herald) want another east-west vehicular traffic corridor in addition to Highway 90. If they indeed do need another east-west vehicular traffic corridor they should look somewhere besides the CSX tracks.
