JACKSON, MISS. – The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has imposed a weight restriction on an Interstate 55 bridge in Rankin County.
The I-55 bridge was recently inspected, and the inspection documented deterioration in the concrete box girders near the supports. A further in-depth inspection and analysis showed the deterioration is due to overload and the bridge needs to be load posted until repairs can be made.
Therefore, the following load restriction has been imposed on Bridge No. 93.1 located over Interstate 20 westbound in Rankin County:
- 21 Tons H Truck
- 24 Tons HS Short Truck
- 27 Tons HS Long Truck
Signs are in place to alert motorists of the load restriction. View a detailed map of all bridge postings HERE.
MDOT plans to issue further instructions in the near future.
