MDOT 100 Moment: 1940 - Bridging the Mississippi River

A year before Japan launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, life across the Mississippi Delta would be changed forever with the opening of the Highway 82 Benjamin G. Humphrey’s Bridge. Over the next century, the state would see the development of three more bridges along the Mississippi River. Thank you for tuning in to this 100 MDOT moment.
