Northbound traffic over the blue bridge is moving normally again after police shut down one lane for several hours Saturday after a suicide.

A man was found underneath the bridge about 8:45 a.m., Pasco police said in a news release. Franklin County Coroner Dan Blasdel said the 64-year-old man hanged himself.

Authorities aren't yet releasing the man's name pending notification of next of kin.
