Intermittent closures set for Fort Bayou Drawbridge over the next two months

If your drive takes you over the Fort Bayou Bridge in Ocean Springs, be prepared for more closures.

MDOT says there will be intermittent bridge closures on Highway 609 over the next two months and these closures will happen Monday through Friday.

It’s to allow crews to test new electrical systems that replaced the original hydraulic system.

Drivers can keep up with bridge closures through the MDOT traffic app or the MDOT website.
