MDMR urges boaters to take caution around Katrina Key

The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources (MDMR) urges boaters to take caution around a project to expand Katrina Key reef on the south side of Deer Island.

Concrete rubble started being deployed by barge to expand the existing Katrina Key structure to the west on Sept. 18. Work is expected to last two to three weeks depending on weather conditions. The MDMR requests that boaters allow a 200 foot buffer zone around the barge and spotter boat while construction is underway. Permanent aids to navigation will be installed upon completion of the construction phase.
