What goes up must come down, right?

Morrisey Boulevard Bridge got stuck in the upright position

Looks like upbridge, Will McArthur reported around 5:20 p.m., after the bridge went up for somebody heading to or from the yacht club and then just didn't come down.

It's now approaching four hours for the bridge to remain upright, so DCR has brought in a doctor, or, at least, repair crews, to try to get it down again.

If you push something hard enough, it will fall over.

No, it’s the one we maintain so that people can drive their cars across what was previously an unobstructed public waterway.

All depends on your point of view :)

Not really. There was a navigable waterway belonging to the public. The city wanted to build a road across it. On the theory of “leave things as you found them,” it is the obligation of the party wanting to build the road, to not obstruct the public’s use of its waterway. Hence drawbridges. Loads of litigation on this going back to forever ago.
