Traffic snarled the Ben Franklin Bridge for about an hour earlier this evening after a man threatened to jump off the span and into the Delaware River, according to initial police reports.
Police blocked off a lane of traffic on both the east and west bound sides of the bridge shortly after 6 p.m. and PATCO trains were halted temporarily, according to reports. City police said the Delaware River Port Authority police were handling the incident.
A message left for a DRPA spokesman was not immediately returned.
DRPA police said all police were clear of the scene by 8:30 p.m.
