The Roosevelt Bridge was blocked in both directions last night as D.C. police and Arlington firefighters investigated a suspicious package on the Virginia side of the span.

Authorities shut down the heavily-traveled thoroughfare around 7:30. The all-clear was given around 8:15.

The large backups that formed as a result of the closure cleared quickly once the bridge was re-opened.
