DAYTONA BEACH — The Main Street bridge re-opened after it was closed just before 10 a.m. Saturday following a motorcycle accident that damaged the structure.

The motorcycle was heading east on Main Street toward the beach when it ran through one of the traffic arms that dropped into position to allow the drawbridge to rise, police said.

The driver wasn’t injured, but the motorcycle is now dangling off the bridge. The damaged traffic arm must be replaced and a bridge inspection must be completed by FDOT before it can reopen, according to authorities.
