EAST HADDAM, CT (WFSB) -

A mechanical problem closed the Swing Bridge in East Haddam starting Thursday afternoon.

Around 3:30 p.m., the town of East Haddam said the Swing Bridge, also known as Route 82, was closed to vehicular and marine traffic.

Friday, it reopened to vehicle traffic; however, it remains closed to marine traffic.

Officials said the reason for the closure was an issue with gears. Ice was not a factor.
