FISHERS, Ind. —
Officials say I-69 was closed in both directions for awhile Monday afternoon due to a suspicious package on a bridge above the interstate.
Officials told The Herald Bulletin's news gathering partner WISH-TV that I-69 was closed northbound at the 5-mile marker near Fishers and southbound at the 10-mile marker.
Police were investigating a suspicious package on the Campus Parkway bridge which turned out to be a backpack. The lanes on the bridge were also closed.
Both north and southbound lanes reopened just before 6 p.m.
The owners of the backpack returned to pick it up. Officials say there was no criminal intent.
