Interstate 110 & Mississippi 15

Interstate 110 & Mississippi 15 provide a freeway spur from Interstate 10 and D'Iberville south to Biloxi, Keesler A.F.B., and U.S. 90 (Beach Boulevard). The freeway follows a viaduct north from an elevated trumpet interchange that protrudes partially over the Gulf of Mexico to a drawbridge over the Back Bay of Biloxi. The northernmost 1.50 miles of the Interstate is a standard four-lane freeway.

Interstate 110 weathered Hurricane Katrina rather well with only sign and guard rail damage. The route was closed for a short duration until crews could clean up debris from the southern end and get U.S. 90 (Beach Boulevard) back in operation. The adjacent old Mississippi 15 bridge however was partially destroyed by high storm surge.
