Supervisors Award $16.24 Million Bid For New Bridge

Over two years have passed since the Gums Crossing bridge was closed in early 2019. Multiple spans of the bridge have crumbled into the lake since then.

GUMS CROSSING – The Yalobusha County Board of Supervisors awarded a $16.24 million bid to replace the Gums Crossing Bridge on County Road 221. The bid was awarded to Malouf Construction during a special meeting Friday morning in Coffeeville and construction on the two-year project is expected to start in April.

The project is the largest ever awarded by the Yalobusha County Board of Supervisors. At just under a half-mile long, the bridge  spans the backwaters of Grenada Lake including Skuna River and is the longest in the county.
