Traffic flowing again on Wilkes Bridge

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport Police tell us the Wilkes Bridge on Cowan Lorraine Road is back in operation and traffic is flowing smoothly right now.

Earlier this morning, dispatchers said the bridge was stuck in the up position for a short while.

It was just last Thursday the bridge was stuck for three hours. Even then, MDOT officials warned it would happen again until they found a permanent solution to the mechanical problem.
