Suspicious Item Shuts Down Bush Turnpike, Turns Out It's An Antenna

PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - A suspicious item shut down all westbound lanes of the President George Bush Turnpike in Plano near Custer Road Wednesday morning.

That item turned out to be an antenna.

The report of the closure came around 10 a.m. where police were not allowing any traffic to go under the overpass at Coit Road.

The lanes that were closed during the incident were eventually reopened. All lanes of Coit Road at the Bush Turnpike have since been reopened, as well.

A bomb squad was on the scene investigating the item and cleared the scene.

They later advised people to "throw trash in the proper receptacle" after they realized it was an antenna.
