MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST - The Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau has erected the first way-finding signs in Hancock County.
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional CVB, in partnership with Powell Construction Services, has begun placing way-finding signs along the Coast beginning with Hancock County. The numbers on these signs will coincide with the numbers located on the map inside the Dining and Attractions Guide Book available in print and at gulfcoast.org and will extend through Harrison and Jackson counties at Highway 90 intersections. Way-finding signage will make navigating the Gulf Coast easier for our visitors as well as our locals.
Each circular sign is blue with white text decorated with an orange shrimp and 24" in diameter. There are more than 270 signs total at 79 locations along the Coast.
"The Dining and Attractions brochure will assist locals and travelers alike by using the exits off I-10 and way-finding signage on Beach Boulevard to find restaurants, attractions, casinos and golf courses along the Coast," explains Renee Areng, Executive Director of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional CVB.
Funding is made possible by a grant from the Gulf Seafood Tourism & Promotion Fund. The Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional CVB has worked with MDOT to ensure the design and placement are consistent at each signal.
