Brownsboro Road near Holiday Manor is now open after a bomb scare closed the area for half an hour this afternoon.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says police were notified after a suspicious suitcase was spotted abandoned next to a utility pole. The department’s bomb squad responded, and an x-ray revealed the suitcase was full of clothes.

Mitchell says the road was closed for about 30 minutes while the bomb squad responded. Police were in the area until 2:30, but traffic was allowed to pass through.
