ALBANY - Traffic is moving on Washington Avenue in Albany after what was thought to be a suspicious package was reported late Thursday morning at the state Education Department building.

Police say the package had been left by a delivery person and did not pose any threat.

Washington Avenue was closed from Hawk Street to Swan street while the package was investigated.

The scene was soon cleared once it was determined that there was no danger.
