    One of the main routes into downtown was closed early Thursday due to police activity.

    Officers shut down southbound State Route 163 at Robinson for several hours just after 6 a.m.

    Video from NBC 7 Newschopper shows police officers standing near a body in the roadway.

    Patrol cars had the westbound I-8 onramp to 163 blocked to oncoming traffic, diverting people to I-8.

    At 7:30 a.m., officers had opened the stretch of highway running from I-8 to Washington Street. The highway was reopened by 9 a.m.

    It was the second highway closure of the morning.
