LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) —  Officials were forced to shut down the Harbor (110) Freeway in downtown Los Angeles Monday afternoon after a man climbed up a freeway sign.

More than two dozen firefighters were called out to the sign at Seventh Street at about 2:15 p.m., according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

All southbound lanes were closed except for the number one lane, as crews worked to bring the man to safety. The northbound side of the freeway remained open.
