Repairs coming soon for 2 Clinton bridges

CLINTON, Miss. (WJTV) -- Repairs will soon come to two bridges in Clinton.

The Board of Aldermen approved a bid of $68,900 from Key Constructors to repair the Midway and Pinehaven Bridges.

They were recently closed following Federal Highway Administration inspections.

Midway was closed on March 12, 2018 and Pinehaven was closed on March 20.

City leaders said crews would begin repair work on each bridge on April 19, weather permitting.

Repair work is expected to take no more than 30 days dependent upon weather.

Official said the short term repairs are expected to extend the life of the bridge for up to five years and provide an opportunity for a long term solution to be designed and funded. C

"Our goal is to get these bridges repaired and open to traffic while working on long term funding and designs for replacement bridges," said Mayor Phil Fisher. "We understand the strain bridge closures put on motorists and we are committed to reopening the bridges quickly.”

Residents are encouraged to follow detours that are posted along the routes.
