Distinct, old highway bridge in Mississippi for sale
from The AP
August 4, 2017 -

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Department of Transportation has listed a highway bridge for sale.

The Sun Herald of Gulfport reported on Thursday that the state will even pay the buyer what it would cost to tear down the Mississippi Highway 57 bridge over Red Creek in Jackson County.

MDOT district engineer Kelly Castleberry says the bridge has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Therefore whoever buys it must, by law, maintain it as a historical structure with proper maintenance.

The Red Creek Bridge was built in 1959 and has distinctive steel trusses.

Castleberry says the state regularly offers bridges for sale when they're being replaced.
