The rest area and its entrance ramp at mile 25 southbound were closed for two hours while a state police bomb detection dog searched the property. No bomb was found.

The rest area reopened at 9:15 a.m., according to the turnpike authority.

The case remains under investigation and police ask that anyone with information call 624-7200.
