Long Description:
The land across the Bay from Biloxi used to be accessible only by ferry. Word has it that a man named Popps ran the ferry. The land across the mainland wasn't developed until the middle part of this century except for a few farms. It was "out in the country" and basically undeveloped. Now, this area is well-developed, and to take the place of the ferry, a causeway was built, and since then, a modern bridge which raises to let tugboats, sailboats and shrimp boats traverse the Bay. The road that runs through here is called "Popps Ferry Road", and the bridge "Popps Ferry Bridge". This bridge was damaged by Hurricane Katrina when a shrimp boat crashed into it, but it is now up and running, one of three major roadways to leave the Biloxi area.
