An overnight police situation that caused some delays and restrictions overnight at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has been resolved. 

Phoenix police were called to assist with additional screening as a precaution, according to airport officials. Police say the item they were investigating was determined to not be dangerous. No threats were made to the airport. 

The roadway passing Terminal 3 was closed for some time, and access to terminals 2 and 4 was altered. One departing flight was reportedly delayed and airport officials say passengers at Terminal 3 were sent to other terminals.

Operations are reportedly back to normal, but travelers, especially those using Terminal 3 services, should check their airline status before arriving at the airport.
