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.
