Fishermen block Placentia lift bridge after waiting overnight to unload crab

A skipper who waited overnight to offload crab because the Placentia lift bridge was down blocked vehicular traffic in protest Thursday morning. Brian Barry and his two crew members stopped dozens of vehicles from crossing the $50-million Sir Ambrose Shea Lift Bridge at around 10 a.m. Barry left in his boat to go crab fishing at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday and returned with a load of crab at 9 p.m., but wasn’t allowed back into port, he said. He said he was told officials wouldn’t lift the bridge in fear that it would stick and not go back down. >click to read<12:31
