Toledo river bridge remains stuck in up position

The Associated Press

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Officials in Toledo are trying to lower a river bridge that's stuck in the up position for the second time in a week.

The Martin Luther King Memorial drawbridge got stuck last Tuesday. Then it happened again Friday after it partially opened for a ship. It is still stuck open Monday.

WTVG-TV in Toledo reports (http://bit.ly/1zhElFq ) that crews are dealing with electrical and mechanical issues as they try to figure out what happened.

The city says an electrical component that needs to be replaced wasn't immediately available, and a clutch may also have to be replaced.

The bridge, which sits over the Maumee River, first opened to traffic in 1914.
