Kennedy Boulevard remains closed in both directions leading up to the Hillsborough River drawbridge as crews work to remove a drill rig involved in an accident Tuesday morning. According to city of Tampa officials, the drill rig, which was on a barge on the river, became hooked on the bridge as it went up. The drill rig then slid partially off the barge and into the river. Crews are trying to determine the best way to lift the drill rig. That likely will involve a higher capacity crane, which will be used to secure the partially submerged drill rig.
