BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Department of Transportation is providing $800,000 for a sand beach pathway in Hancock County.

The Sea Coast Echo reports that money will be used to extend the Sand Beach Pathway to Buccaneer State Park, to expand the multi-use pedestrian and bicycle pathway segments, develop rest and interpretive plazas and local a visitor's center for Beach Boulevard Scenic Byway.

MDOT funds came from the Transportation Enhancement program. It provides 80 percent of the project funding. Bay St. Louis and Hancock County will provide an estimated local match of 20 percent.

MDOT is working with the local entities to determine construction schedules on each of the projects.
