Officials: Suspicious package cleared; George Washington Bridge lanes reopen
Traffic has reopened on the George Washington Bridge after authorities investigated a suspicious package scare.

Officials say the suspicious device was found on the upper level of the bridge near the New Jersey side just before 9:30 p.m. Thursday, causing authorities to briefly shut down traffic in both directions.

The Port Authority Police and Bergen County bomb squad were at the scene, along with the New York Police Department, which gave the all clear just after 11 p.m.
