Palmetto Expressway Shut Down During Friday Morning Rush Hour During Police Investigation

Friday morning traffic came to a stop during rush hour on the Palmetto Expressway as police conducted an investigation of a car located north of NW 36th Street.

Police shut down the major highway completely for sevreral minutes before 9 AM while they searched a car located on the right shoulder. Miami-Dade officers said they were looking for bullet casings inside the car, but would not disclose what cases could be linked to the search.

Crews eventually reopened one lane for several minutes before opening others, causing quite the delay for anyone traveling on that road.
