NORTH BERGEN, N.J. — Lanes of the eastbound Route 495 reopen after a Friday morning shutdown in New Jersey.

Police activity on the road caused morning closures. Traffic was temporarily diverted off NJ-495 at Kennedy Boulevard and reentering vial local roads, Port Authority officials said.

Express bus lanes on the road are now open.

Police tape was seen blocking the lanes, with emergency crews in the area.

Reporters on scene said there were reports a body was found in the road. A PIX11 photojournalist was on his way to work when he saw “something large in the road,” but could not tell what it was.
