Damaged bridge on HWY 57 closed for two years

A damaged bridge in South Mississippi will stay closed for two years while a new one is built.
Southern District Transportation Commission Tom King says it would cost $500,000 and six months to repair the Mississippi Highway 57 Bridge over Red Creek in Jackson County. King says officials were already planning to replace the bridge when a truck hit and damaged the structure in September. The commissioner says that’s too much money for a bridge that would still be closed to heavy trucks.
Officials will seek bids for a new bridge in December.
