More Bridges Added to Closure List

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — After Governor Phil Bryant ordered the closure of 83 bridges in Mississippi on Tuesday, transportation officials added another 19 bridges to the list. Even more bridges could be ordered closed as counties submit information to the state. Bryant could call legislators back to the Capitol for a special session to consider a long-term plan to pay for transportation improvements; the House and Senate couldn’t reach consensus during the regular session that ended in late March. The bridges in more than a dozen counties will remain closed until they are in compliance with federal and state laws, regulations and standards.
