Traffic flowing again on Cowan Lorraine Road

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Traffic is moving once again after a repair crew fixed a problem with one of the draw bridges on the roadway.

The draws on the busy road became stuck in the upright position around 4:30pm Tuesday. Gulfport Police detoured busy rush hour traffic at Seaway Road and Magnolia Street, and urged drivers to avoid the area.

Local crews were able to get the southbound span down, but a repair crew from New Orleans had to come in to help finish the job.
