MERIDIAN —     The Highway 80 bridge at Chunky River will close Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. for repairs, according to a Mississippi Department of Transportation press release.

    The bridge will be closed for up to 12 hours on Highway 80 between Highway 15 and Interstate 20 at the community of Lost Gap, MDOT officials said.

    "Only local traffic will be able to access Highway 80 between Highway 15 and the bridge; as well as from the bridge to Lost Gap," the press release states.

    The bridge will close to repair a damaged structural member that was found during a routine bridge inspection.

    Key Constructors, LLC will perform the work.
