Traffic now flowing over Fort Bayou Bridge

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - The Fort Bayou Bridge in Ocean Springs closed to traffic for more than an hour Monday afternoon when the drawbridge didn't close properly.

The drawbridge was opened around 1:50 p.m. to allow a boat to pass through, but the locking mechanism failed when the tender tried to close the bridge. The bridge reopened to traffic around 2:45 p.m.
