ENGLEWOOD — The Tom Adams Bridge into Manasota Key broke down Saturday, causing difficulty for travelers making their way to the key and its beautiful beaches.

The drawbridge was closed to traffic for several hours while it was stuck in the open position — until authorities were able to lower and lock it into place, allowing vehicles to cross, according to a press release from Charlotte County Sheriff’s Lt. Richard McDonald, watch commander. But that means officials will not be able to open the bridge for sailboats and larger water vessels until it is repaired. No further information was available late Saturday.
