WBZ shows us a what a beached cement truck looks like after it rolled over around 5 a.m. on the ramp from the Tobin that leads to I-93 south and Storrow Drive. State Police held off recovery efforts so that other drivers could squeeze by in the one remaining lane. The ramp was due to be shut at 9 a.m. to let crews get the truck out of there.

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded to the Tobin Bridge around 11 p.m. on Monday for a fire in the shaft that used to carry toll takers up to and down from the bridge's toll booths from Terminal Street in Charlestown.

Some plastic about halfway between the ground and the lower deck caught on fire in the shaft, which is in the process of being demolished, the department reports. There were no injuries in the two-alarm fire, but outbound traffic was delayed.

UPDATE: 9:07 p.m. Negotiators succeeded in talking him down and he's now in police custody.

The Tobin Bridge is shut to inbound traffic as Boston and State Police negotiators try to convince a man who climbed the girders up to the top to come down. Just in case, the Coast Guard and the Boston Fire Department have personnel stationed on and near the Mystic River.

Samantha Irene photographed the bridge without traffic.
