BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - The Popp’s Ferry Bridge is back open after closing again early Wednesday morning for an inspection.
The inspection was due to a barge crashing into the bridge Tuesday afternoon.
The bridge is now open to vehicular traffic. However, marine traffic usage remains closed until further notice.
Just before 1 p.m. Tuesday is when authorities say a barge crashed into the wooden pylons on the east side of the Popp’s Ferry Bridge. Those pylons surround the concrete pilings that form the base of the bridge.
