Columbus, Miss. (WCBI) – Bridge safety is one of his major concerns.

That was the word from Northern District Transportation Commissioner Mike Tagert. Addressing members of The Columbus Exchange Club during their recent meeting, Commissioner Tagert told a luncheon crowd, not only in Mississippi, bridges are a concern nationwide.

“Posted bridges are a concern when we post bridges we limit our ability to move commerce, to move our raw materials, to move our finished products. And that’s a concern from an economic development standpoint,” said Mike Tagert, Northern District Transportation Commissioner.

A task force is expected to meet the second week in July to make recommendations to lawmakers ways of funding the state’s transportation system.
