Miami International Airport's Concourse E was closed briefly Sunday evening as Miami-Dade police and the TSA investigated a “suspicious item” found in the concourse, according to the airport.
By 10:30 p.m., the airport tweeted that the “security incident has been cleared. Operations now slowly returning to normal.”
The Concourse E checkpoint and surrounding area on the second floor were closed, including the outside curb. The closure caused a traffic backup outside.
It was not immediately clear what the suspicious item was.
