Bay Bridge needs your vote to win a national award

JACKSON, MS (WLOX) - The Bay Saint Louis Highway 90 Bridge is a national finalist for the America's Transportation People's Choice Award. It's one of ten bridges around the country nominated for its architecture.

Whether the Bay Bridge wins or not is up to all of us, because we all get a vote. You'll need to hurry, the deadline is October 10th.

Tuesday, inside the state capitol rotunda, there was a pep rally of sorts to encourage everyone to vote for the Bay Bridge.

The state with the winning bridge project will receive an educational grant in the transportation field.
