August 25, 2018

BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) — The bridge that carries the principal highway between Phoenix and Las Vegas over the Colorado River was closed temporarily Saturday.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said on Twitter that officers were at the highway bridge near Hoover Dam because of a “possible suicidal subject,” resulting in a closure of U.S. 93 in both directions and traffic backups in Arizona and Nevada.

No additional information was immediately available.
