The main highway linking Phoenix and Las Vegas has reopened in both directions.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says U.S. 93 reopened after a possibly suicidal man was taken into custody Wednesday at the high span Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

The bridge crosses the Colorado River near the Hoover Dam.

The highway was closed for about three hours.
