The project replaces eight bridges in Lincoln, Marion, Jefferson Davis and Walthall Counties, six of which are in poor condition with three closed and three load-restricted. The bridges represent vital connections for the region’s economic activities.

The project improves the overall condition of transportation infrastructure in the region and maintains access to life services for residents. It reduces maintenance costs.
