A person threatening to jump from an overpass prompted the closure Friday morning of a stretch of the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway in Pasadena.

A man was spotted on the bridge over the Del Mar Boulevard offramp about 11:45 p.m. Thursday and authorities have been working to get the man down safely, according to the California Highway Patrol.

All southbound lanes of the Long Beach Freeway south of the Foothill (210) Freeway and the transition roads from the east- and westbound Foothill and westbound Ventura (134) freeways to the southbound Long Beach Freeway were closed until further notice, the CHP said.
