Bridge on North 12th Street to be replaced

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Board of Supervisors considered bids to replace a bridge during their Monday meeting.

Bids were taken into consideration to replace a bridge near Hattiesburg High School on North 12th Avenue near Conti Street.

A third-party inspection was made on the bridge just south of the high school and it was determined that it needed to be replaced due to having wood pilings for support.

According to the board attorney, the bid was awarded to Mago Inc. construction at just over $400,000, and construction should begin next year.
