The Friday morning commute on the Rockport/Newburyport rail line is expected to go smoothly after a mechanical issue on a drawbridge in Saugus was fixed, officials said.
Some trains were canceled and others were delayed by up to 40 minutes Thursday morning after the bridge failed to close around 6:30 a.m., according to Keolis Commuter Services, which operates the commuter rail for the MBTA.
The bridge was returned its horizontal position by 7 a.m., and train service over the bridge resumed, said Justin Thompson, a Keolis spokesman.
No train service will be interrupted Friday as a result of the drawbridge issue, Thompson said.Maria Lovato can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter @maria_lovato99. John R. Ellement can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @JREbosglobe.
