Wilkinson County will soon have a bridge reopening that has been closed for over a year. Rep. Angela Cockerham, special counsel with Wise Carter, worked with the Wilkinson County Board of Supervisors and County Administrator, Bruce Lewis, to secure 1.7 million dollars to be utilized for emergency bridge and road repairs in the county.

Wilkinson County was awarded the funds during the 2018 First Extraordinary Session in Senate Bill 2002, which distributed BP oil settlement funds.
