Expect delays on Popp's Ferry bridge this week

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Expect delays this week on the Popp's Ferry bridge in the late morning hours. The bridge will have intermittent closures on Monday through Wednesday while crews inspect the drawbridge spans.

Openings and closings of the drawbridge can be expected each day between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Each opening and closing will be for about 15 minutes. The openings will be separated by 30 minute intervals.

This work is necessary in order for a city contractor to inspect the span grating and evaluate components of the bridge's span locks and other components.
