Varnedoe Bridge Opens

Your drive into work along the Islands Expressway should be a lot easier. The Sam Varnedoe Bridge is back open.

The bridge had been closed for two months after a deadly accident caused almost $200,000 worth of damage. It was supposed to open Tuesday, but failed inspection.

They're opening one lane eastbound this morning. Two westbound lanes will return to just westbound traffic. By Tuesday, public works hopes to open the second eastbound lane.
