County officials await bridge report; could need replacement

GULFPORT — Authorities in Harrison County expect to have a report on the inspection of the Lorraine Road Bridge within two weeks.

Gulfport chief engineer Kris Riemann tells WLOX that the report from Volkert Engineering will provide data for a new rating for the bridge.

If the rating is too low, it likely will mean the bridge should be replaced.

Riemann says other recommendations could include at least temporary bridge to keep the bridge in use.
