Roebling Suspension Bridge reopens after police clear bomb threat

COVINGTON, Ky. — The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge reopened Sunday afternoon after being closed for a bomb threat, Kenton County dispatch said.

The bridge reopened at around 1:05 p.m. after being closed for approximately three hours for investigation. The bridge was shut down as Bengals fans tailgated nearby for the team’s home opener.

This was the second bomb threat this month targeting the historic suspension bridge. A prior threat Wednesday was investigated by authorities and deemed not credible.

Cincinnati and Covington police have now turned the investigation over to the FBI.
