Long Description:
Plummer Point Pier on Biloxi Bay in Ocean Springs MS extends out at least 800 feet with 4 covered areas. It is great place to watch trains cross the bay and the CSX line swing bridge operate.

In the photos you can see them swing the bridge to let a boat through.

The CSX Biloxi Bay Swing bridge can be viewed from the Piers that extend out into the bay from either side of the bay.
