Ready Mix Street Bridge repaired, reopened

Construction Zone

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The Ready Mix Street Bridge has reopened.

The bridge was closed as crews made repairs to it. The original bridge was constructed in 1962 and had exceeded its structural life expectancy.

City officials said the repairs were paid for by the 1 percent sales tax funds.

In April Mayor Tony Yarber and the city council decided to hire  Dozer, LLC, to build the new bridge.

This is the second bridge to be repaired this year and paid for by the 1 percent sales tax funds. Officials said the Hanging Moss Street Bridge had been closed in 2015 due to structural damage and reopened June 14.  The City used nearly $400,000 in 1 Percent Sales Tax dollars to replace it.
