Overnight closures on Fort Bayou drawbridge in Jackson County

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

The drawbridge will be closed tonight and tomorrow from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following day.

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.

The bridge was closed in March for work to repair damage to the bridge and then reopened in May.

It also closed for two days in July for similar work that is being done this week.
