The Fore River Bridge, a drawbridge separating the Massachusetts cities of Quincy and Weymouth, was closed to traffic for part of Tuesday afternoon and evening due to a malfunction.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation confirmed around 5:30 p.m. that the bridge was stuck in the open position.

Shortly before 6:45 p.m., MassDOT said the bridge had reopened.

The MBTA was reporting major delays on bus routes 220 and 222 because of detours due to the bridge issue. There was increased traffic in the area.

No further information was immediately available.
