A man who was on top of the “Magic City” bridge near the Minot Airport has come down without incident, allowing traffic to return to normal.

The man was spotted on top of the cage portion of the pedestrian bridge about 2:30, prompting police to respond with negotiators to get him safely down. Police say the 36-year-old man has been taken to Trinity Hospital for evaluation.

That happened just before 5:30 this afternoon.

Traffic was detoured around the bridge for about three hours but is now back to normal.
