ALBION – The state Department of Transportation has reopened the Main Street lift ridge over the Erie Canal, a day after the 1914 span was hit by a pickup truck.

The bridge was hit by a pickup truck at about 8:30 a.m. The bridge was closed until it could be inspected today. The DOT reported the bridge would reopen at noon today.

The bridge is due to be closed on Oct. 17 for about 18 months for a major rehabilitation.
