Gate operations at Keesler AFB will be adjusted during Cruisin’ the Coast, the biggest annual event in the state of Mississippi. Car enthusiasts from 41 states plus Canada and Sweden will drive to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the event, which begins Sept. 30 and runs through Oct. 7. Almost 8,000 vehicles were registered in 2016. This event is expected to bring traffic to a standstill along a 30-mile stretch of Highway 90 from Bay St. Louis to Ocean Springs. Drivers can expect significant congestion along Highway 90, I-110, Irish Hill and Pass Road.
Keesler gate operations will be adjusted for the White Avenue and Meadows Drive gates starting Oct. 5.
