PORTLAND, Maine — The Casco Bay Bridge has reopened to traffic after a drawbridge became stuck in an upright position earlier this afternoon.

The bridge had opened to let a ship go through and after the vessel passed around 4 p.m., the side allowing traffic from South Portland into Portland did not fully close.

The Portland Press Herald reports that traffic started moving in both directions around 6:15 p.m.
