    Traffic is flowing again along a major route into downtown after it was stopped due to police activity on Friday afternoon.

    At about 12:12 p.m., CHP shut down traffic along Northbound State Route 163 from Interstate 5 as well as on-ramps because of the incident.

    CHP also closed southbound SR 163 south of Robinson Avenue.

    The closure affected Interstate 5 south through downtown and northbound I-5 traffic before Interstate 8.

    Just before 2 p.m., CHP officials announced the police activity in the area concluded and the closures would be reopened and the lanes were reopened a short time later.
