New details about the Bridge opening from the Lake Village Chamber:
A ribbon cutting for the new Hwy 82 Mississippi River Bridge will take place this coming Monday, July 26th at 10am on the center of the bridge. Everyone and anyone is invited to attend! (Don't worry about parking, there will be hwy department folks there to guide you. Some of the parking may be on the bridge, but in my opinion, you should still wear your walking shoes because it's not certain how many people with attend the event, so some walking is inevitable.) A stage will be set up at the center of the bridge where the ribbon cutting will take place.
The city of Greenville, MS is hosting a 5K run/walk to commensurate the grand opening on Monday, July 26th at 6am. Come one, come all, it's FREE! The run/walk will start on the Greenville side of the bridge.
