An unattended, suspicious vehicle in the right lane of the Manhattan bound lanes of the Brooklyn Bridge, mid-span, has shut down all traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge, according to an NYPD spokesman.

"The Dodge Durango found stopped along the Manhattan-bound side of the span had no license plates when they investigated."

New York City police have given an all-clear after an abandoned vehicle closed the Brooklyn Bridge at the tail end of the Memorial Day long weekend.
Police say the Dodge Durango found stopped along the Manhattan-bound side of the span had no license plates when they investigated Monday evening.
Investigators say they received the call around 5:15 p.m. and halted traffic in both directions around 6 p.m. Police gave the all-clear as of 7 p.m.
The New York Police Department's bomb squad and other investigators headed to the area to check out the car. Television footage showed police trucks stationed on the empty span near the blue SUV as traffic backed up on nearby roadways.
The bridge has been closed before because of suspicious packages.
