(KSL News) -- Traffic was backed up for miles on I-15 this morning, when authorities shut down a gate at Hill Air Force Base, to check out a suspicious package.

A Major at the Base says they received a report of an unattended box, left in the middle of the road at the South gate.

Officials closed the gate to traffic, while an explosives team investigated.

The team took x-rays of the box, and decided it was safe to move to a nearby parking lot.

Once experts opened the box, they found nothing inside, but cardboard.

Officials then reopened the gate about ninety minutes later.
