Inner Harbor Bridge In Ocean Springs Closed For Repairs

The largest and most heavily traveled bridge in Ocean Springs is closed indefinitely because of safety concerns.

Inner Harbor Bridge on Shearwater Drive was shut down on Thursday. Public Works Director Andre Kaufman said the wooden pilings that support the bridge are rotting away.

Construction crews have worked to shore-up the support system in recent years, but the structure is now beyond repair. Kaufman said the bridge will have to be replaced.

In the meantime, motos should use Kennsington and Pine Drives as a detour route.
