LAS VEGAS -- Nevada Highway Patrol is reopening both directions of traffic on U.S. 95 from Las Vegas Boulevard to the Spaghetti Bowl about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Trooper Loy Hixson said the item would be detonated, should it turn out to be a dangerous device. A bomb squad investigated the item and determined it was not harmful.
