Bridge Closure to Cause Inconvenience

The Mississippi Department of Transportation is temporarily closing the Highway 80 bridge at the Chunky River for repairs.

The bridge will close for up to 12 hours, or until the repair is complete, starting at 7 a.m Saturday, May 18.

The management of Chunky Shoals Fish Camp says his business will only be accessible from the west side, but he will definitely be open.

Structure damage was discovered during a routine inspection of the bridge.

The location is on Highway 80 between Highway 15 and Interstate 20.

Only local traffic will be able to access Highway 80 between Highway 15 and the bridge, as well as from the bridge to Lost Gap.
