TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge is back open in downtown Toledo after malfunctioning for a short time Thursday afternoon.

Just before 3 p.m. the bridge would not raise, stopping traffic along Cherry Street and trapping a ship on the Maumee River.

Around 3:15 p.m. the bridge raised, allowing the ship to make its way up the river. Once the ship passed, the bridge was lowered and traffic flow resumed.
