OPA-LOCKA (CBSMiami) – An unexploded ordnance created travel problems Friday afternoon.

The bomb shell was found at Trademark Recycling on Cairo Lane in Opa-locka, but was not considered dangerous.

Employees were evacuated from the area and 132nd Street and N.W. 32nd Avenue had to be closed as a precaution.

Opa-locka once housed a naval air reserve base during the Korean War.

The Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad took care of the device.

The discovery was made in the vicinity of the South Florida Rail Corridor so Tri-Rail trains were unable to proceed further south than the Opa-locka Station for a short time Friday afternoon.

A bus bridge was established to shuttle passengers between the Opa-locka and Metrorail Transfer stations.

Passengers were shuttled between the Hialeah Market and Metrorail Transfer station by train.
