The Mississippi Department of Transportation said Monday that overnight closures of the Fort Bayou drawbridge in Jackson County are planned this week.

The drawbridge will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 p.m

MDOT will be pouring concrete, as well as lifting and installing new machinery.

The bridge will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. on those days, but motorists are reminded to be on high alert for roadside workers.
