I-20 bridge work nears halfway point

JACKSON — As construction crews work diligently to construct the I-20 westbound bridge over State Street/U.S. 51, 48 percent of the construction of the bridge has been completed and is on schedule, according to the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT).

An average of 130,000 vehicles travel the I-20 area daily.

In July, crews began hanging steel girders on the project. Two spans of girders have been completed out of the five spans that will be installed on the project. The retaining wall west of the bridge has also been completed.

The I-20 Westbound Bridge was built in the 1960s. Once the new bridge is constructed it will meet current interstate standards and allow for future plans of the interstate system.
