CHESAPEAKE, Va. – The South Norfolk Jordan Bridge has reopened after being closed in both directions overnight due to police activity.

Chesapeake Police say they received a call at 1:55 a.m.  Officers responded and closed the span at both ends.  The bridge remained closed until just after 6:30 a.m.

Police tell News 3 that there is no danger to the public. The bridge was closed because a man was threatening to jump from the top.
