The City of Belton posted that State Highway 317 is open after being closed due to a suspicious device found near the Leon River bridge.
A Fort Hood unit specialized in explosive ordinance detection and disposal was on the scene. The city said the device was found when a construction worker discovered an 18-inch piece of rock with a borehole in it and wire protruding from it.
The road was closed for three hours.
