Purple People Bridge temporarily closed for public safety

By: WCPO staff

Police rushed to close the Purple People Bridge Tuesday afternoon after a stone fell from the first pier, according to a tweet posted by the city of Cincinnati.

“This has loosened one of the stones directly underneath,” a city representative wrote around 3 p.m.

The city did not provide an anticipated time the bridge, which connects Cincinnati to Newport, would reopen.
