Robinson Road bridge collapses

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A bridge on Robinson Road has collapsed Friday morning.

The bridge is located between Raymond Road and McDowell Road. It was  closed back in February after officials said they found significant structural grade separation on the southeast corner during routine inspection.

Cardale Jones, who owns the Family Learning Village that’s across from the bridge, said he knew it was only a matter of time before the bridge gave out.

“Iknew that the bridge was in bad shape its been there long time and its just has deteriorated,”said Jones.

The bridge was expected to remain closed for at least nine months.
