Interstate 71 reopened at 2:30 p.m. after a bomb squad disabled an incendiary device that had shut down the highway for about five hours and created traffic headaches for thousands.

The investigation into who made it and why is underway.

The Cincinnati bomb squad disabled the device, with a loud bang, about 12:30 p.m. It had been found about 9:30 a.m. in the grass off the highway near Edwards and Williams roads in Norwood.
