SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Traffic is back open on the Causton Bluff Bridge following a 2-hour delay during the height of rush hour.

All lanes of traffic on the Islands Expressway drawbridge were closed shortly after 5:00 p.m.

The drawbridge was stuck in the upward position.

All traffic was being diverted through Thunderbolt, causing major delays for many on the road.

The eastbound side of the bridge is open, but the westbound lanes are still closed.

Repairs began on Monday causing closures on the westbound side of the bridge until Friday.
