biloxi, commuting in

hi,

i'm moving to biloxi in a little while and was curious if the bridge (110) was bike friendly? there is an apartment complex on the north side of it that i am interested in but would have to commute across it to get to keesler afb.. i'm hoping it's bicyclable.

thanks,

robin.

I've spent some time around Biloxi, Gulfport and Ocean Springs. The bridge you are referring to goes from Biloxi to D'Iberville and is an interstate highway. Normally you can't ride a bike on an interstate but the I-110 bridge has a protected, separate pedestrian walkway across the bridge that is accessed via a stairway from Bay Shore Drive in Biloxi. There is another stairway on the north side of the bridge. There are rarely pedestrians on the bridge. If you are OK with carrying your bike up a wide flight of stairs that has about 30 or so steps to get to the walkway, you can pedal across the bridge. The walkway is not real wide so if by chance there is a pedestrian you might have to stop or slow and let the person by and then continue on. I pedaled across there one time. I don't recall if there was a "no bicycle" sign for using the walkway. Maybe they figure the stairway will discourage a bicycle rider from using the bridge? If you use Google Earth, and then switch to streetview mode, you can literally drive yourself across the bridge in the car traffic lane and see the walkway on the east side of the bridge as you are headed north from Biloxi to D'Iberville.

Another place you might want to consider living is Ocean Springs. More expensive perhaps, but a very nice community. Ocean Springs to Biloxi is via the new (post Katrina) US 90 bridge with a very wide bike lane and a beautiful view of the area, and no stairs required at either end of the bridge!
