The San Francisco Police Bomb Squad determined in less than an hour Monday afternoon that an object called in as suspicious was not.
All streets around New Montgomery were open by about 2:30 p.m.
Police said the object was reported on New Montgomery Street bounded by Market and Jessie streets at about 10:30 a.m. as a low priority call. Officers went to check at about 1:20 p.m. and deemed it suspicious enough to call in the bomb squad, police said.
The object was deemed safe enough to open the streets less than an hour later. For that one hour though, several on Twitter complained about the snarled traffic.
