MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant Police say traffic is moving again on the Ben Sawyer Bridge.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m., police said the bridge had been temporarily closed in both directions. The bridge reopened just after 2 p.m.

Police said the closure was the result of a vehicle that collided with an arm designed to block traffic when the bridge closed. Crews inspected the arm out of an abundance of caution to confirm no damage, police said.
