Suspicious Device Near SEPTA Station Slows Traffic, Detours Buses

Drivers and riders dealt with delays Wednesday morning as crews closed off a busy SEPTA hub after some sort of device was found nearby.

The incident blocked off Ridge Avenue near the Wissahickon Transportation Center near the Main Street split in Manayunk around 7 a.m.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later, you could see traffic coming off the City Avenue Bridge and the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) backing up as Philadelphia Police blocked off roads around the area.

SEPTA also briefly detoured its 1, 38, R, 123, 124  bus routes.

After about 45 minutes, crews gave the all clear and began letting traffic through again.
