Popp’s Ferry bridge re-opened to traffic

City emergency workers re-opened the Popp’s Ferry bridge to traffic shortly after 10 this morning, after an early morning traffic accident downed a utility pole and utility lines at the bridge’s south approach.

A southbound vehicle struck the utility pole just north of the Anatole Bay entrance, leaving the pole and a host of utility lines across Popp’s Ferry Road, which is the north-south corridor serving west Biloxi.

Utility workers will be on the scene making final repairs, so motorists are advised to use extra caution when traveling in the area.
