by MCS Staff

All travel lanes have reopened on I-270 after a police incident closed local lanes at Falls Road on Wednesday, June 7. According to Rockville Police, “Around 11:00 a.m. this morning RCPD officers responded to the Northbound exit Ramp at Falls Road for the report of an individual threatening to jump. Out of an abundance of caution, the northbound local lanes were closed down as well as the exit ramp. After about two hours of successful negations, the individual willingly agreed to be taken into police custody and transported for medical assistance. All lanes of traffic have been reopened.”

The Montgomery County MD Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security (OEMHS) tweeted the following at 11:35am on Wednesday, June 7: “Severe Traffic Alert – I-270 NB Local Lanes – Traffic incident closes all northbound local lanes of I-270 at Exit 5 Falls Road. Expect significant delays. Seek alternate route. #mdtraffic”
