NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The historic Clarence Hussey Memorial Bridge has reopened to traffic in Wickford.

WPRO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/2ek7mg1) that the 91-year-old bridge in North Kingstown’s Wickford village opened eight months ahead of schedule.

The bridge carries Route 1A over Wickford Cove. It was closed twice this year for repairs as part of a $3.2 million rehabilitation project.

The span was named for the state’s first bridge engineer, who died in 1925 after the bridge was completed.
