Authorities shut down all lanes of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge for more than five hours Saturday, due to police activity as the CHP dealt with a male threatening to jump.

The closure of state Route 75, which started just before 3 p.m., continued into the early evening, according to a California Highway Patrol incident log.

The CHP reported as of 8:37 that the bridge was clear and lanes would be re-opened, with units starting to do so five minutes later.

There was no word at to the outcome for the possible jumper, though Coronado police noted in an 8:19 p.m. alert that the incident on the bridge had been “resolved safely.”

Officers in the seaside community had blocked approaches to the bridge by 3:07 p.m. Ten minutes later, the CHP had declared a Sig Alert with both sides of the bridge closed.

The closures also affected Interstate 5, as authorities closed ramps leading to the bridge.

According to the CHP log, by 3:35 p.m. a negotiator had contacted the man threatening to jump, who had stopped his vehicle in the westbound lanes. It was noted that no weapons had been spotted.

Around 4 p.m. authorities reported that the man had moved away from the ledge of the bridge.

San Diego police aided with the closures.

According to Caltrans, authorities also closed the bridge for approximately three hours early Saturday due to unspecified police activity.
