KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Knoxville Police says all lanes have reopened after officers and Tennessee Department of Transportation vehicles blocked all lanes of eastbound Interstate 40 Friday morning in order to respond to a suspicious package.

All lanes of I-40 E at Pellissippi Parkway overpass had been blocked as emergency personnel responded to the area. The right shoulder of Pellissippi Parkway and on-ramp to I-40 E were also blocked due to police activity.

A KPD spokesperson released a statement around 3 p.m. was a small ‘improvised explosive device’ which appeared to be an improvised firework. The device was removed from the scene by Bomb Squad personnel for safe disposal and all lanes of traffic were reopened around 11 a.m.
