A suspicious package investigation closed down a stretch of the Ventura (134) Freeway near the Glendale-Los Angeles border tonight.

The package was reported around 7 p.m. near the Glendale (2) Freeway interchange, said Sgt. Jeff Albrecht of the Glendale Police Department.

A sheriff's bomb squad was called to assist in the investigation, Albrecht said.

The California Highway Patrol shut down the freeway in both directions, but eastbound lanes were reopened around 8 p.m., according to news reports.

The westbound lanes were reopened just before 9 p.m., according to the CHP.
