A man got out of a car on the upper level and jumped around 9:20 a.m. Although a witness initially reported seeing the person in netting on the lower level, a firefighter discovered the person's body at a construction site below the bridge.
State Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney's office are investigating, although a spokesman for the DA's office says the death is not considered suspicious. The DA's office reports the man was 43.
Traffic in both directions was delayed as firefighters looked for the person.
