BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Traffic came to a standstill on the I-110 Friday morning when the drawbridge became stuck in the upright position.

Officials with the Mississippi Department of Transportation tell WLOX News the problem happened when workers were testing the draw's new breaking system.

MDOT has been doing major renovation work on the bridge, and workers are still troubleshooting to make sure everything is operating correctly. They believed the problem is now fixed.
