Yazoo County Drivers Want Dangerous Bridge Replaced

Posted: Updated:

    A dangerous Yazoo county bridge has local drivers worried the structure could collapse.

    The old wooden bridge is located on Anding Oil city road in the Little Yazoo community.

    Jeannette Williams uses the bridge almost everyday. She'd been complaining for years about the dangerous structure and she wants it replaced.

   The county did recently install steel pilings and a beam after large trucks that ignore the weight limit caused the bridge to slump.

   County leaders agree the bridge needs to be replaced. But there's a hitch. They've been unable to locate nearby landowners to get the property they need.

    The price tag for a new bridge could run as high as a million dollars.
