Drivers beware: Wilkes Bridge will close overnight

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Drivers who use Highway 605 to get to the interstate need to read this.  The Mississippi Department of Transportation will temporarily close the Wilkes Bridge Wednesday night.

Beginning at 10:00 tonight, crews will replace hardware on the drawbridge. Repairs are only expected to take a few hours. During that time, the bridge will be closed. And drivers will have to take either Highway 49 or Popp's Ferry Road to get into Gulfport.

MDOT crews expect the bridge to be back open to traffic in the early morning hours on Thursday.
