Bridge was struck by a coal ship today. The ship also damaged a recreational boat and dock.

Bridge has been stuck in the open position for hours at a time in the last few years. Was just stuck this morning from midnight to noon due to a sensor problem.

This 12 year old bridge has been closed three times over its life for repairs. Here is news on the latest closure:

This bridge points to two problems:

-Modern bridges are not as reliable and long-lived as historic bridges.

-Alternatives to salt for deicing bridges need to be researched and employed.
