COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) — The city of Columbus shut down the pedestrian bridge at the Riverwalk Friday because of damage to a support pillar.
It is the pillar on the east side of the Tombigbee River closer to downtown.
"The pillar is leaning and has pulled away from some of the metal supports that attach the pillar to the bridge,” said city engineer Kevin Stafford.
The city in its news release announcing the closure did not give any indication how long it expected the bridge to be closed.
