Mid-Bay Bridge connecting Niceville and Destin closed overnight.

Florida Department of Transportation announced temporary closure Tuesday.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office says corrosion was found in the cables that support the concrete.

It's not clear how long the closure will last while f-dot performs emergency repairs.

In the meantime EMS crews will be staged in Destin so it doesn't affect emergency response times.

Okaloosa County School District says it's working to release more info on alternate bus routes.
