Coast bridge rehabilitation project underway
Published: September 23,2010
BILOXI — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun work to rehabilitate the Interstate 110 Bascule Bridge in Biloxi.
The $4-million project was awarded to Boh Brothers Construction Company, LLC, of New Orleans. Work on the project will consist of replacing the structural steel within the bridge draw span. Currently work is underway to fabricate sections of the steel grid deck at a remote location. Once construction of the steel decking is completed, the materials will be transported to the bridge site.
“Currently the bascule bridge at I-110 requires lots of routine maintenance,” said MDOT project engineer Michael Harter. “Along with meeting higher standards, this rehabilitated bridge will consist of newly designed steel grid decking, which will greatly minimize repairs and delays to motorists.”
Traffic flow will not be impacted until Jan. 2011, when the draw span will be replaced. The project is scheduled for completion in May 2011.
