The Mississippi State Port Authority at Gulfport (MSPA) is undertaking a process to rebuild and restore the damage to its facilities wrought in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina. This website is a repository for information pertaining to the restoration project and is designed to inform and educate Gulf Coast and Mississippi residents and others about the project’s progress.
The MSPA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and gives preference to Section 3 eligible residents and business concerns when new hiring and contracting opportunities arise. More information on Section 3 can be found at hud.gov.
On October 30, 2012, the MSPA Board of Commissioners voted that the Port of Gulfport would not pursue elevating its West Pier to 25 feet above sea level. As this restoration design change is being implemented, please be aware that information contained within this website may be in the process of being updated. Should you have questions about the information contained on this website, please email email@example.com.
