Police say Interstate 75 is closed in both directions just south of the state line. Traffic is also being stopped on nearby Interstate 280.

A spokeswoman with the Ohio Department of Transportation says workers cleaning up litter along I-75 found some sort of suspicious device. 

Police are diverting traffic. It's not clear how long I-75 and I-280 will be closed.

Both are heavily traveled routes connecting northern Ohio with southeastern Michigan and Detroit.
