CHESAPEAKE, Va. – A malfunction at the High Rise Bridge that closed east and west lanes caused major backups.

The malfunction came after a scheduled bridge lift Friday evening.

After the bridge closed, there became a malfunction with the bridge’s grate locking mechanism, which opens the bridge.

The malfunction was fixed later that night.
