ATLANTA -- All northbound lanes of the Downtown Connector have reopened near the Peachtree-Pine Street exit.

Northbound backups stretched back beyond Interstate 20 after the road was shut down by a man threatening to jump onto the roadway Monday morning.

An inflatable cushion was placed on the roadway by fire-rescue crews, as police worked to secure the man. He was taken away shortly after that point.

Traffic resumed as normal shortly after 10 a.m. Backups continued beyond Turner Field, but were expected to clear shortly.
