JAMESTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — Members of the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (RITBA) spent hours removing a tractor-trailer from the Jamestown Verrazzano Bridge after it crashed into a temporary water barrier Friday afternoon, the agency said.

RITBA said the crash occurred on the westbound side of the bridge and brought traffic to an abrupt halt.

Traffic was blocked for several hours on the westbound side of the bridge, but has been cleared as of 7 p.m.

RITBA said no one was injured and the cause of the accident is unknown at this time.
