Suspicious device discovery forces closure of Lake Murray Boulevard on-ramp to WB I-8

SAN DIEGO - A report of a suspicious device Monday afternoon forced the closure of the Lake Murray Boulevard on-ramp to westbound Interstate 8.

Authorities said shortly before noon, Caltrans reported the discovery of the suspicious-looking device near the overpass of Lake Murray Boulevard along the westbound side of I-8.

The law enforcement response prompted the closure of the on-ramp, as well as the closure of the Parkway Drive ramp.

Traffic was also briefly halted at westbound I-8 near Lake Murray Blvd.

A bomb squad inspected the object, and just before 3 p.m. on-ramps were reopened.

Authorities did not say what the object was and if it was anything hazardous.
