Mississippi updates tender schedule for hurricane-hit bridges
Mississippi's Department of Transportation has announced a revised tender deadline of noon on 30 December for the bids to replace the bridges over Biloxi Bay and St Louis Bay on the US 90 road. The 2.6km and 3km-long bridges were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Public price openings for both tenders will be held on 9 January with the awards made the following day. Notices to proceed are expected to be issued on approximately 18 January, with the two projects due for completion in July and September 2007 respectively.
