Bridges of south Mississippi

(WLOX) - Is your daily commute putting you at risk on the road? At first glance, many of the bridges in south Mississippi appear normal. But a closer look shows a much different picture.  The federal government says 49 bridges are structurally deficient.  In simpler terms, unsafe. Tom King is the Southern District Highway Commissioner.  He knows the bridges are a tragedy waiting to happen.  "Frankly, I'm very concerned. One death is not worth the cost of repairing our bridges or replacing our bridges," King said. WLOX Reporter Doug Walker is finding out why these bridges have been neglected, and what's being done about it. Thursday at 10pm on WLOX, News Now.
