University of Arkansas Police were called out to investigate a suspicious package Wednesday (April 10).

The package call was made around 7:44 a.m. Wednesday, according to UAPD.

The caller told authorities they were concerned over a black box with wires connected to it.

Authorities were not able to identify the box so they blocked off a portion of campus.  Upon investigation, UAPD said the box turned out to be construction-related.

The area was reopened within 45 minutes.
