The Rainbow Bridge was shut down for about 45 minutes Tuesday after a suspicious briefcase, thought to possibly contain a bomb, was spotted at 2:45 p.m. in the U.S. Customs and Immigration Building, according to police, fire and bridge officials.

Traffic was rerouted to the Whirlpool Bridge until 3:30 p.m. when it was determined the briefcase contained nothing dangerous and was left there inadvertently, a bridge official said.
