Pascagoula Bridge lane closures set for Wednesday, Thursday

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - If you drive the long bridge across the Pascagoula River, be prepared for delays this week.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation will close one lane in each direction along I-10 so workers can install navigational lights underneath the bridge. The work will begin Wednesday at 9am and continue until 3pm, then follow the same schedule on Thursday. If additional time is needed, work will continue next week.

The outside lanes and shoulder of the bridge will be closed. MDOT crews will be working under the direction of the Coast Guard. Upon completion, the navigation channels of the West Pascagoula River will be delineated for marine traffic under the bridge.
