East Haddam Swing Bridge Reopens After Mechanical Malfunction

The East Haddam Swing Bridge has reopened after a mechanical malfunction closed it to traffic Thursday afternoon.

State Department of Transportation crews were called in due to an issue with the system that locks the bridge into place.

"It is closed but the system that locks it in the closed position is not safely engaging," explained DOT spokesperson Kevin Nursick.

As of 5:20 p.m. the bridge had reopened and traffic was moving.
