KATU-TV reports police got a 911 call Tuesday that said a bicyclist left a toolbox on the bridge and quickly left.
The bridge over the Willamette River carries light rail, bus and vehicular traffic. The report came in about 4:20. Police reopened the bridge about 6 p.m.
Police say the bicyclist found the fare box on the bridge and got it out of the way, setting it on a railing.
Police said the caller was justified in making the report, and they are prepared for more such reports in the jittery aftermath of the Boston explosions.
