Colorado River Bridge Near Hoover Dam Reopens

BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) — The bridge that carries the principal highway between Phoenix and Las Vegas over the Colorado River has reopened after being closed part of Saturday afternoon.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said on Twitter that the highway bridge near Hoover Dam reopened after officers took into custody a person described earlier as possibly suicidal.

The closure of U.S. 93 in both directions caused traffic backups in Arizona and Nevada.
