STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Bridge repairs forced the closure of Sun Creek Road in Oktibbeha County.
Work began on Monday to replace two bridges, leaving the road closed for four to six months, the Starkville Daily News reported.
District 3 Supervisor Marvell Howard told the newspaper that the work was necessary due to safety concerns.
He said the 4-to-6-month timeline is dependent on favorable weather.
Until the project is completed, the road will be closed to thru traffic.
