NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) -

The Gold Star Bridge between Groton and New London was closed in both directions following a number of crashes.

However, it reopened just before 9:30 a.m.

State police reported the closure to Eyewitness News just after 8:30 a.m. on Monday.

They said it was due to icy conditions.

Monday's snow storm made for some slick driving conditions along the shoreline, particularly along Interstate-95.

They called the closure brief.

The Department of Transportation treated the highway for ice.
