D.C. Police earlier today shut down portions of several streets near Farragut Square to investigate a suspicious package.
As of 3:31 p.m., officers at the scene said there was no danger and reopened the streets
K and L streets NW had been closed between 16th Street NW and Connecticut Avenue NW, said D.C. Police.
A reader tweeted us earlier to say police were telling pedestrians to evacuate from the area.
