New High Rise Ahead Of Schedule

Drivers along Highway 90 in Jackson County could be crossing the new high rise bridge sooner than expected. Today, transportation commissioner Wayne Brown announced, the high rise bridge in Pascagoula is five months ahead of schedule, under budget, and could be complete by early 2003.

Brown told business leaders at the Chamber of Commerce, the bridge and the surrounding road work is an investment in the county's future. Brown also discussed other possible road projects in the county, including four laning Highway 57 on the west side of the county.
