Interstates reopen near Ohio-Michigan state line

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Toledo have reopened two interstate highways near the Ohio-Michigan state line that were shut down because of a suspicious item along the roadway.

Police say the item was determined to be safe. They are allowing traffic to move again on Interstate 75 just south of the state line.

Traffic also had been stopped on nearby Interstate 280.

A spokeswoman with the Ohio Department of Transportation says workers cleaning up litter along I-75 found some sort of suspicious device.

Both are heavily traveled routes connecting northern Ohio with southeastern Michigan and Detroit.
