Biloxi Bridge Closed To Truck Traffic

A 31 year old bridge in Biloxi is now off limits to school busses, 18 wheelers and other heavy vehicles until further notice.

An inspection of the Cedar Lake Bridge north of Interstate 10 found the support beams are deteriorating.

Cars and pickup trucks can continue using the bridge. Heavier vehicles will have to detour around the bridge, using the Cedar Lake exit off I-10 to access areas south of the bridge, or Old Highway 67 to access areas north of the bridge.

Notices were being posted Tuesday near the bridge. There's no word on when repairs would be done or what they will cost.

The city just took control of the bridge January first from Harrison County.
