MDOT finds bad bridge near school, re-posts weight limit

bridge_rgbTISHOMINGO COUNTY — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has identified yet another aging bridge — this one near a school — and has re-posted its weight limit.

MDOT recently evaluated the posted weight limit of Bridge No. 2.3 on State Route 172 during a routine bridge inspection. It was determined that due to the aging of the structure, the posted limit will be downgraded to 25 tons gross or 50,000 pounds.

Bridge No. 2.3 is just north of Tishomingo County High School in Tishomingo County.
