NATCHEZ, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The city of Natchez's Bridge of Sighs project has been approved by a local preservation commission.

The Natchez Preservation Commission on Tuesday approved a conceptual design by landscape architect Jared Acy.

The project had been delayed for past couple of months after the commission asked the City of Natchez for more detailed plans for the bridge.

The Bridge of Sighs will replicate a now-gone pedestrian bridge at the top of Silver Street. It will allow pedestrians to use the Natchez Trails to cross the street rather than fight traffic.

City Engineer David Gardner says the project involves using a prefabricated bridge, meaning it will be built off-site by a manufacturer and assembled on location.
