Cemetery Road closed for bridge replacement

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Beginning Monday, May 25, Cemetery Road in Harrison County will be closed to thru traffic while crews work to remove a bridge and replace it with a new one.

Harrison County Road Manager Russell Weatherly said the project is part of a state program to improve bridge infrastructure.

Weatherly said signs have been placed directing thru traffic to Northrup-Cuevas Road, which will be used as a detour during closure.

The work is expected to last eight weeks, weather permitting.
