The Brickell Avenue Bridge was reopened to pedestrians and vehicles on Saturday after it became stuck in the up position for some time following mechanical and electrical malfunctions earlier in the week, officials said.

On Thursday, Florida Department of Transportation officials notified there would be no vehicular or pedestrian access while the bridge was placed in the up position. Crews worked "around the clock" making repairs, officials said.

On Friday, the southbound lanes of the bridge were reopened but the northbound remained closed until Saturday morning.
