Mississippi Department of Transportation

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) played a vital role in rebuilding the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. The resilience shown by citizens and local officials in South Mississippi reflects MDOT’s efforts to replace a critical transportation network in record time, including the Bay Saint Louis Bridge and the Biloxi Bay Bridge. MDOT’s movement in the extraordinary journey of this region following Hurricane Katrina tells the inspirational story of not only reconnecting communities, rebuilding bridges and restoring mobility, but renewing the Gulf Coast’s economy, infrastructure and culture. The shared vision that made this renewal possible defines an important era in Mississippi’s history and continues today in projects along the I-10 corridor. MDOT remains committed to this effort that will inspire generations for years to come and build a strong and bright future for Mississippi’s Gulf Coast.
