The Canadian side of the Ambassador Bridge is open again for international travel after a suspicious package Sunday shut it down for several hours.

Windsor police announced a closure due to a "suspicious package found in a vehicle," just before 9 p.m Sunday. The bridge that connects Detroit to Canada was closed for an "indeterminate period of time" as they investigated the situation.

According to a tweet from the Police Department on Sunday evening, the package was found in a vehicle on the bridge.

The bridge, which spans from the city of Detroit over the Detroit River to the city of Windsor on the Canadian side, remained closed for almost two hours.
