Three men stand at three windows this morning to make repairs to the Old Levee Street Depot, which is being restored for a transportation museum and offices for tourism entities in Vicksburg. The Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau offices moved into the 105-year-old building last month. The City of Vicksburg and the Mississippi Department of Transportation are financing the restoration of the building that will be part of a complex that will include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers MV Mississippi Interpretive Museum, less than a block away on Washington Street. Working to paint and caulk windows this morning are city employees Frank Ashley, from left, Troy Jones and Daniel Dunigan. The National Weather Service forecasts today’s sunny skies to return Wednesday before showers enter the picture again on Thursday.
