HARRISON, N.J. -- Authorities say a suspicious package found underneath a railroad trestle near the new Red Bulls Stadium in New Jersey posed no danger.

A spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the station was closed for 60 to 90 minutes Saturday evening while authorities investigated. He said the package was judged not to be a danger, and train service to the station resumed.

A soccer game at the stadium was not affected by the investigation, although a road leading up to the stadium was blocked and hundreds kept out of the facility until authorities said it was OK to reopen the road.
