MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Great news for Miami drivers.

The southbound lanes of the Brickell Avenue Bridge have re-opened to traffic.

On Tuesday, the span got stuck in the up position when two of locking devices were damaged in a test.

Over the next two days, workers removed one of the two locking devices from the northbound span and installed it on the southbound span, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

This allowed two of the three southbound lanes to be opened to traffic. One of the northbound lanes closed after the locking device was removed, to reduce stress on the bridge. This was a temporary fix until engineers get extra locking mechanisms to return the bridge to normal operations.

CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald contributed to this report.
