Bridge Demolition at Future Buc-ee’s Exit Will Require I-10 Closure

Mississippi I-10 Construction | I-10 Traffic | I-10 Exit Guide

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) reports that as part of an interchange project funded by the Harrison County Board of Supervisors and Buc-ee’s, bridge demolition is now underway on the Menge Avenue overpass bridge on I-10. Crews are currently removing the bridge deck.

In order to remove the bridge beams, all lanes of I-10 westbound at Menge Avenue will be closed overnight on Monday, August 7 from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., followed by a closure of all lanes of I-10 eastbound at Menge Avenue on another night. MDOT will notify the public when the I-10 eastbound closure is imminent.

The timing of both closures is subject to change and dependent upon construction progress, availability of materials and weather conditions. While these closures are in place, traffic will be re-routed utilizing the Menge Avenue exit and entrance ramps. Detour signage will be in place, and drivers may seek alternate routes. Motorists are reminded to be on high alert for roadside workers.

The project’s scope includes replacing the Menge Ave. bridge over I-10, widening entrance and exit ramps and widening Firetower Road. Funded by the Harrison County Board of Supervisors and Buc-ee’s, MDOT approved the interchange plan and issued a permit for this project’s construction.

Construction began July 5, and the project is expected to be completed in approximately 18 months.
