Gulfport Dock Repair


Q: Why have the docks damaged by Tropical Storm Debby not been repaired or even properly blocked so kids don't hurt playing on or near them? – Tony Althaus

A: According to Harbormaster Denis Frain, Gulfport will repair both the dune walkover dock as well as the Clam Bayou dock as soon as it receives a third bid. Once the city gets the third bid and decides on a company, the repairs can start. The repairs should take two to three weeks, Frain saus. City staff has attempted to secure both docks, Frain says, but both docks have been “vandalized several times over the past thirty days,” he adds.

Gulfport staff continues to try and secure the docks until they get repaired, Frain promises.
