Police closed east and west bound lanes of traffic on I-270 at Chain of Rocks Bridge Monday morning while responding to a woman threatening to jump.

A police situation caused traffic backups on the Chain of Rocks Bridge in Granite City on Monday morning.

A tweet from the Chain of Rocks Bridge Twitter account said there was a “heavy rescue presence in the middle of the bridge” and that a St. Louis boat was heading north on Riverview.

Officers were trying to speak to a suicidal woman threatening to jump from the bridge., according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story. The paper later reported the woman was safe, but the bridge remained shut down at 10:55 a.m.

Further details were not immediately available.
