JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The City of Jackson's 1% sales tax dollars are being put to good use in North Jackson.

On Tuesday, contractors started construction on a brand new Hanging Moss Road bridge.

The current bridge has structural deficiencies and has been off limits to traffic for the past several months.

Hanging Moss Road between Beasley Road and Meadow Lane is closed during the bridge replacement construction.

The work is expected to be complete this coming summer. 

"It is one of the projects that are in this year's plan for the one percent money. We know that the public is very excited about it because this span is often traveled by motorists who come from as far north as Madison," says Sheila Byrd, the City of Jackson's Communications Director. 

The bridge replacement has been budgeted for $395,000.

A ribbon cutting will be scheduled when the new bridge is complete.
