RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)–Reports of a suspicious package led Richmond Police to close parts of Broad Street and Interstate 95 where it runs under the bridge.

The threat temporarily closed Broad Street, starting at the bridge over Interstate 95 at 15th Street, down to 19th Street.

CBS 6 is on scene, and at 7:30 p.m. the situation was all clear. The roads are now open.

Richmond police said they worked with Capitol and State Police to quickly close roads. 

The suspicious package turned out to be a five-gallon ceramic flower pot.
