A crash on the Saint john Harbour Bridge Sunday morning has the eastbound lane opened only intermittently.

A single car crash happened in the bridge’s eastbound lane around 4:30 a.m.

The bridge has been under construction for months and has been reduced to just two lanes while crews perform the work.

Police said the driver of the car involved failed to make a sharp turn at the area of the bridge where the construction ends.

Injuries are not serious, said police who shut down part of the bridge for 45 minutes immediately following the crash. 

Since then, there have been periodic lane closures to allow police to do their work.
