Police briefly closed the Fair Lawn Avenue bridge Thursday morning to investigate reports of a suspicious object on the bridge, Sgt. James Krizek said.
Fair Lawn and Paterson police officers closed their respective sides of the bridge just before 9 a.m., so the Bergen County Police Department's Bomb Squad could locate and inspect the object, he said.
Following the bomb squad's examination, the object was confirmed to be a car part with wires sticking out of it, Krizek said.
The bridge remained closed for about 45 minutes.
