This bridge looks so much better. The parts of the top that were bent, due to over height trucks, was fixed. Also a fresh coat of grey paint was added. I will try to take a photo or two of it. I live just up the road.

I visited the bridge on October 7, 2016. It was still closed, but I spoke with a Mississippi DOT official who said the bridge would likely reopen sometime the following week.

MDOT will be closing Hwy 178 East and West lanes for maintenance on this bridge. I believe one thing that is being done is painting the metal structure. It sure needs a fresh coat.
