BROOKLYN (PIX11) - The Mill Basin drawbridge caused a traffic nightmare for commuters on Mother's Day after it became locked Sunday morning.
Around 10:45 a.m., the Mill Basin drawbridge became stuck in the open position, causing major delays and putting traffic on the Belt Parkway at a standstill. Traffic has since started moving in both directions.
For roughly an hour after the bridge locked in place, however, the parkway resembled a parking lot, with people walking between cars, talking and stretching.
One person tweeted, "Literally a walking dead scene on the belt parkway. Completely stopped, people walking around out of their cars . . . RIP"
As of 11:50 a.m. the drawbridge came down and traffic began moving again, but some delays remain.
This is a developing story; refresh for updates.
