Shut Down the River
Now it's merely "closed to river traffic" for a short while:
Chicago Police temporarily closed the Chicago River while they investigated a suspicious package near Wabash Avenue and Wacker Drive just north of the Loop.
Authorities later determined the package to be abandoned luggage, officials said.
Police were called to the area about 6 p.m. and closed traffic on the river downtown while the police Bomb and Arson Unit investigated, according to Police News Affairs.
