JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) - The Mississippi Department of Transportation has placed a weight restriction on a state highway in Scott County.

MDOT crews recently inspected a bridge on Highway 35 that spans the Kansas City Southern Railroad near Forest.

State bridge inspectors found deterioration on several of the bridge's steel girders.

The weight limit allows the bridge to stay open to the public. The restrictions are placed on commercial trucks.

Signs are now in place to alert drivers of the load restriction.
