TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Officials have made electrical repairs and conducted test-runs in hopes of reopening a northwest Ohio river bridge that was stuck in the up position for days.

The Blade newspaper (https://bit.ly/1D9EDCl ) reports that crews repeatedly raised and lowered Toledo’s Martin Luther King Memorial drawbridge on Tuesday night to check whether it was working properly. As some alarm bells continued to sound, it wasn’t clear whether the bridge would reopen Wednesday as they’d hoped.

The bridge got stuck a week ago and then again last Friday after it partially opened for a ship.

Those problems have caused significant traffic troubles. Officials haven’t been able to keep the bridge lowered for road traffic because that would block river traffic during a busy season of commercial shipping on the Maumee River.
