The Coast Guard announced that it is limiting the number of times that a rotating bridge along Metro-North will be opened to river traffic.

The Walk Bridge over the Norwalk River was stuck in the open position twice in recent weeks, shutting down service and causing major delays.

Officials say cutting down on the openings will give crews time to make much-needed repairs.
