PORTLAND -- A suspicious package closed some lanes on the lower roadway at Portland International Airport Wednesday night, officials said.

Just before 10 p.m. an unclaimed backpack was spotted at the south and of the baggage claim level, said Port of Portland spokesman Steve Johnson.

A bomb squad was called in shortly afterward and determined the backpack was not a threat.
