State Highway 4 in Pittsburg has been reopened following earlier police activity at Loveridge Road that snarled traffic for more than two hours, a California Highway Patrol officer said. The highway was shut down in both directions shortly before 7 a.m. because of activity involving a man on the Loveridge Road overcrossing, CHP Officer Peter Van Eckhardt said. Pittsburg police have since taken the man into custody, Van Eckhardt said.The CHP began reopening the highway at 9:34 a.m., but Van Eckhardt said traffic would likely still be backed up for a while.
