Possible jumper on overpass closes I-680


All lanes of Interstate Highway 680 are closed in both directions in San Jose Monday evening due to a pedestrian on an overcrossing, a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

The report of the pedestrian at the Alum Rock Avenue overcrossing came in around 2 p.m., CHP Officer Ross Lee said.

Lee said the pedestrian was threatening to jump but did not know the person’s status this evening, Lee said.

A Sig-alert closing both directions of Highway 680 at Alum Rock Avenue was issued at 2:48 p.m., CHP officials said.

Southbound traffic has been diverted to McKee Road and northbound traffic has been diverted to Capitol Expressway, he said.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use alternate routes, CHP officials said.

There is no estimated time of when the lanes will reopen, according to the CHP.
