It will apparently be several more weeks before the main venue into downtown Meridian is reopened.
City officials say they had hoped to partially reopen the 22nd Avenue bridge Monday, but they recently learned that it would require a vote of the city council to reopen it.
Mayor Cheri Barry says she expects it will be the beginning of the year before the bridge reopens.
It has been closed since late June, undergoing renovations. Some drainage issues and weather have delayed the renovations.
