North Midway Road Bridge
11/19/2020 Update: Based on inspections which indicated structural deficiencies of the bridge, Hinds County and the MS State Aid Road and Bridge Division required that the City close the bridge until repairs or replacement could be made.
Prior to the required closure of the bridge the City had begun the process of design to replace the bridge using funding by a Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) as administered by the FHWA, MDOT and CMPDD. Under this program approximately 80% of the construction costs are funded by the FHWA/MDOT and the remaining 20% are funded by the City.
During the November 17 Board Meeting the Board approved advertisement of bids pending approval from FHWA/MDOT of design plans. At present, the City is awaiting approval from the FHWA/MDOT of the final plans and specifications at which time approval to advertise for the improvements will be granted. Depending upon the timing of the advertisement and acceptance of bids for the improvements, the City hopes to begin the construction of this bridge replacement in July of 2021 with construction time again being between 4 – 6 months.
