HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police investigating a suspicious package closed Kakaako thoroughfares for hours Monday as they investigated.

Kapiolani Boulevard and Ward Avenue were closed about 7:30 a.m., when the item -- an unattended black suitcase with "What's in the box?" written on it in large script -- was reported.

The incident caused snarled traffic in the area as drivers sought alternative routes.

Police reopened all lanes about 9:10 a.m., when they determined the suitcase posed no threat.
