Update: The Southern Boulevard Bridge has reopened after being closed while police investigated a suspicious package near former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club.
Police said in a statement that they received a report of someone trespassing at the club, 1100 S. Ocean Blvd., at 11:20 a.m. and eventually arrested a 53-year-old man on a charge of trespassing after warning.
"Subsequent to that arrest, the Palm Beach Police Department began the process of towing his vehicle, which revealed a suspicious package. We reached out to PBSO for assistance in regards to evaluating the suspicious package, and the package was later determined to not be a hazard," police said.
During this process, portions of the adjacent roadway were closed, the statement said.
The Southern Boulevard Bridge is closed in both directions because of police activity.
Palm Beach Police spokesman Will Rothrock told the Daily News they are investigating a "suspicious package" in a vehicle. No other details were available.
Motorists are being advised to seek an alternate route, the town said in a release sent out about 12:15 p.m.
Rothrock said there is "no ETA" on when the bridge will reopen.
