Morrissey Blvd. bridge open

The Morrissey Boulevard drawbridge has been fixed, state transportation officials said Friday afternoon.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation made the announcement at around 3:30 p.m. on its Twitter account.

The Morrissey Boulevard Bridge was stuck in an upright position Friday afternoon, sending traffic on either side down onto Freeport Street and Dorchester side-streets.

A Department of Conservation and Recreation spokeswoman had earlier told the Reporter a crew was working to fix the bridge and recommended avoiding the area. "We've got people down there looking into it now," said spokeswoman Wendy Fox.
