The Metro Blue Line was shut down for an hour on Monday due to a suspicious package.

Authorities received a call of a suspicious package at the Wardlow Station at about 8:40 a.m. Someone had noticed a shoebox-sized package on top of a ticket-vending machine.

The area was cordoned off for the investigation and passengers were bused around the closure. A nearby nursing home was briefly evacuated due to the investigation.

Bomb experts determined the package was not dangerous.
