NEW YORK — New York’s Metro-North railroad says a bag of clothing on a bridge caused a police investigation that led to 90-minute rush-hour delays.
The railroad says the bag was found around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday on a bridge over the Harlem River at 138th Street that’s only used by trains.
Spokesman Aaron Donovan said the situation was declared safe around 9:30 a.m. after police with dogs checked out the bag. There were still residual delays after the trains got moving again.
It’s not clear how the bag got there.
The problems affected commuters to and from Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.
The morning rush-hour is from 6 to 10 a.m.
