Bridge project nearly complete

Texas Bridge Inc. foreman Margarito Romero signals Dwayne Jefferson, left, and Lokio Guevara as they hook a piece of scaffolding to a crane for its removal Thursday from a painting project on the Interstate 20 bridge over the Mississippi River. Traffic on the 30-year-old bridge was stopped for about 15 minutes at a time for about five hours while the scaffolding was removed. The painting project has taken about a year and a half.(Jon Giffin The Vicksburg Post)
