Interstate 580 has reopened in both directions at Eden Canyon Road following police activity, the California Highway Patrol said Saturday afternoon.

According to CHP, they shut down traffic for a possible bomb scare but it was unfounded.

BART service was also stopped between Castro Valley and Dublin/Pleasanton due to police activity, the agency said.

CHP Dublin Office tweeted just before 4:30 p.m. that all lanes were reopened.

Vehicles traveling westbound on I-580 were diverted to Foothill/San Ramon Road, and eastbound vehicles are being diverted off at Eden Canyon Road, the CHP said.

Traffic on eastbound I-580 was backed up about five miles.
