CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — The Gilmerton Bridge was stuck in the open position on Tuesday, for the second time in less than a week.
WAVY traffic reporter Jen Lewis reported Tuesday afternoon the bridge was stuck open.
VDOT tweeted that the bridge was closed due to a “mechanical issue.”
Officials later reopened the bridge to traffic.
The bridge closed last Friday for a similar issue, and remained closed through the weekend. Officials said there were extended openings Monday as technicians continued to troubleshoot the problem.
