Popp's Ferry Bridge repairs complete, reopened to traffic

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Repair work on Biloxi's Popp's Ferry Bridge wrapped up after about 45 minutes Friday afternoon. Traffic was limited to just one lane while the work was underway.

Officials said steel plates on the bridge had to be welded back together. It was described as a regular maintenance issue. With all the traffic passing over the bridge, the plates loosen over time.
