Police have reopened the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge at approximately 5:30 p.m. Tuesday after it was closed for several hours.
California Highway Patrol officers were called to the bridge at 1:45 p.m. to help a man walking on the bridge. As of 3:00 p.m., officers shut down the span to all traffic.
For those drivers looking to get to or from Coronado, the only route was to use the Palm Avenue exit of I-5. A line of cars waited bumper to bumper along the Silver Strand.
