vicksburg bridge_rgbACROSS MISSISSIPPI- Motorists hardly notice them, but posted bridges are a concern for commercial vehicles and can be a hindrance to economic development and a transportation safety issue.

Posted bridges are not structurally deficient or obsolete. However, they have a limit to their weight-bearing capacity, and vehicles exceeding that limit can cause structural damage.

While posted bridges are scattered across the state, the majority are in the north. As example, there are only two posted bridges in the three coastal counties of Hancock, Harrison and Jackson combined, while Chickasaw County alone has more than a dozen.

Below is a list of all of Mississippi’s 200-plus posted bridges per the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
