GAUTIER — The city has renamed an exit on Interstate 10 in Gautier — East Lake — to match the Cedar Lake exit in Biloxi.
The City Council voted Tuesday night.
It’s the Mississippi 57 exit off I-10 where Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists is building a $10 million, three-story medical building, with plans to add two more.
Bienville Orthopaedic also has ownership in Cedar Lake.
The Cedar Lake exit is known as a medical destination in Biloxi — a main building that has attracted doctor, dentist and surgeon offices into a complex of medical options.
That’s the plan for East Lake and its new medical building: To attract orthopedic patients from the six southern counties.
