Tappan Zee Bridge closed because of police activity

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- -- The Tappan Zee Bridge has been closed because of police activity on the bridge, authorities said.

Officials say a man climbed on the bridge super-structure by the flagpole on Tuesday morning. News reports said a police negotiator was attempting to talk the man down.

That's only about 10 miles from home. It's a good thing I'm not commuting there. Have to wonder though what his problem was. Timing was just right to tie up the morning rush traffic. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any captures from the Tappan Zee Bridge webcams. But then again, I don't think either camera was in the right position to show the jumper. Would've just seen an unusually empty bridge.
