Wilkes Bridge to reopen to 4 lanes next week

Good news, South Mississippi! The Wilkes Bridge will reopen to four lanes of traffic next week.

Gulfport Police tweeted out that the bridge will be closed next week on Wednesday and Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

They followed that statement by saying the closures will allow the bridge to re-open to four lanes on Friday, July 8.

The bridge has been down to two lanes of traffic since January while road crews worked on a bridge rehabilitation project.

WXXV will update this story as more details emerge.
