The Bolivar County Board of Supervisors has officially re-opened the Lampton Street Bridge in Mound Bayou. The bridge was closed in March of 2021 by federal inspectors, according to the county administrator Will Hooker. Construction started in August of 2022, and finished approximately 2 months early. The cost of construction amounts to $700,000.

There was a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate.

The new design is 18 -inches taller and 4-feet wider. Hooker says county officials are continuously working together to make more improvements across the area.
