All lanes of the 101 Freeway were closed at Shoup Avenue in Woodland Hills on Thursday as authorities investigated a possible pipe bomb, the California Highway Patrol said.

A Caltrans crew reportedly found the suspicious device along the freeway and called authorities at 8:12 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

All lanes of the freeway in both directions were closed while a bomb squad investigated.

A Sigalert was issued for the stretch of freeway as traffic started backing up in both directions.
