HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - WLOX News has just received word from Mississippi Department of Transportation officials that road crews have finished up work on the Pearl River Bridge at the Mississippi/Louisiana state line.
Kelly Castleberry, with MDOT, tells us crews wrapped up the expansion joint repair work around 8 p.m. Sunday. The work was expected to last until 7 a.m. Monday, but crews got the work done in a hurry.
For South Mississippians traveling back to the Coast following the Saints game, that means traffic should not be as congested as it was earlier in the day.
The combination of road work, Saints fans from the Coast and New Orleanians heading home from a weekend of fun had Interstate 10 reduced to a crawl at the state line Sunday afternoon.
