PHOENIX -

The Arizona Department of Transportation says northbound Interstate 17 was closed at Van Buren Street in central Phoenix due to a police situation.

ADOT informed drivers to avoid the area by taking Interstate 10 at the Split interchange east of downtown Phoenix and reconnecting with I-17 at the Stack interchange to the west of downtown.

The Department of Public Safety says the police situation was a pedestrian threatening to jump.  That person is now in police custody.  Their name was not released.

For highway closures and restrictions statewide, visit ADOT's Travel Information Site at www.az511.gov or call 5-1-1.
