MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Traffic on the I-55 bridge was at a standstill Wednesday morning for a police investigation.

Northbound lanes were shut down after police said a woman threatened to jump. She was detained a short time later.

A WMC Action News 5 viewer shared a photo of officers on the bridge talking to someone on the ledge.

With the I-40 bridge closed for repairs, the I-55 bridge is the primary path between Tennessee and Arkansas. Traffic is already significantly increased because of the I-40 bridge closure.

All lanes were reopened shortly before 10 a.m.
