Update: Popp's Ferry bridge reopens

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - After a minor issue that hampered traffic, the Popp's Ferry bridge is open to cars and trucks again.

For several minutes this morning, Biloxians heading to work called WLOX, because they were stuck on Popp's Ferry Road.

What we learned was the Popps Ferry bridge had to be closed when the north side gate didn't open after the last barge passed.

A crew arrived and fixed the problem.
