Construction continues on Lorraine Road bridge

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Crews are busy working to replace the Lorraine Road Bridge, despite all the rainy weather. Right now, concrete pilings are being put up.

Construction started in April, but crews say all the rain had them off to a slow start. Now, crews are trying to make up for the lost days.

The 40-year-old bridge was closed in 2013 because of safety concerns. It reopened after an inspection. Crews hope to keep it open as long as they can during the construction of the new bridge.

The bridge is slated to be complete by October 2016.
