A drawbridge on Morrissey Boulevard that was stuck this afternooon in an upright position, snarling traffic as the Friday commute began, has been fixed, according to the state Department of Transportation.
The John J. Beades Bridge was stuck upright for about an hour, said spokesman Adam Hurtubise.
When bridge became stuck, a Department of Conservation spokeswoman urged motorists to avoid Morrissey Boulevard between Freeport Street and UMass Boston.
But the Department of Transportation said later that the bridge's problem had been resolved and traffic had resumed flowing in both directions.
