George Washington Bridge closed due to suspicious package

The upper and lower levels of the George Washington Bridge were closed in both directions Thursday night due to a suspicious package, a spokesman from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey told CNN.

The upper level was closed around 9:30 p.m., and the lower level was closed around 10:20 p.m., according to WPIX.

The lower level of the George Washington Bridge was later reopened in both directions, according to a tweet from the bridge’s official account.

The upper level remains closed in both directions as authorities investigate the suspicious package.

This is a developing story, more to come.
