Police allowed San Francisco Municipal Railway buses to return to their normal routes at 11:15 a.m. after authorities investigated the 2700 block of 16th Street in San Francisco this morning for a suspicious device in the area, police and Muni officials said.

San Francisco police received a call at about 8:25 a.m. about a suspicious device, and sent a bomb squad to the location. Police closed 16th Street eastbound at Folsom Street and westbound between Folsom and Treat Avenue.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency announced that the 12-Folsom, 53-Southern Heights, 22-Fillmore and 33-Stanyan Muni buses were being rerouted around the street closures, Muni spokesman Judson True said.
