NEW BERN, CRAVEN COUNTY -

The Trent River and Neuse River Bridges have been reopened.

The bridges in New Bern were closed for a short period of time Friday morning due to multiple accidents, officials said. The accidents were caused by black ice that was created by overnight precipitation.

Department of Transportation crews were on the bridges to treat the ice with salt and brine. The bridges were reopened at 7:30 a.m. Friday.
