Interstates closed near Ohio-Michigan state line

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Toledo have shut down two
interstate highways near the Ohio-Michigan state line after finding a
suspicious item along the roadway.
Police say Interstate 75 is
closed in both directions just south of the state line. Traffic is also
being stopped on nearby Interstate 280.
A spokeswoman with the
Ohio Department of Transportation says workers cleaning up litter along
I-75 found some sort of suspicious device.
Police are diverting traffic. It’s not clear how long I-75 and I-280 will be closed.
Both are heavily traveled routes connecting northern Ohio with southeastern Michigan and Detroit.
