YAZOO CITY, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Department of Transportation says it is speeding up plans to repair two bridges that are important to farmers.

The department recently reduced the weight limits on the two bridges on a rural stretch of Mississippi Highway 14.

Inspectors found deficiencies in the 67-year-old bridges that are between Mayersville and Rolling Fork.

Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall says Highway 14 is an important route for Delta farmers delivering crops to a grain elevator in Mayersville. Because of that, the repairs are being put on a fast track.
