A bridge in Michigan has reopened after it was briefly closed due to a bomb threat.

The Mackinac Bridge, which connects Michigan's two peninsulas, was closed to traffic in both directions by authorities at 2:15 p.m. after the Michigan Bridge Authority was notified of a bomb threat, a Twitter account for the bridge wrote Sunday evening.
