OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - There was a bit of a traffic jam in downtown Ogdensburg Thursday.

What looked like a wind turbine tower delivery got hung up making a turn off State Street.

City Manager Stephen Jellie told 7 News these deliveries are taking a different route, now going through downtown because they are too heavy for the State Route 37 bridge used in previous wind turbine transports from the city’s port.

It took a bit, but state police and the state Department of Transportation, which supervised the trip, shut down traffic and went the wrong direction on one-way streets around the twin bridges area to clear this up.
