Officials Reopen 134 Freeway In Eagle Rock

View Comments

EAGLE ROCK (CBSLA.com) — Traffic was temporarily diverted off the Ventura (134) Freeway in Eagle Rock on Friday evening while authorities investigated a suspicious package.

The partial shutdown of the westbound lanes of the thoroughfare north of Figueroa Street was lifted just before 9 p.m.

Stu Mundel, who was reporting overhead, said the freeway was closed just after 7 p.m. after a suspicious device was found.

“The bomb squad’s robot picked up the device, brought it over to the other side, and then boom,” Mundel said. “They lit that thing up … there was no secondary explosion.”

The investigation was ongoing.

No further information was immediately available.
