DURHAM --A stretch of I-40 had to be shut down Thursday night, so police could look for a big piece of debris. Just after 7:30 p.m., police shut down all lanes near Miami Boulevard.
Officers used their cruisers to stop traffic so they could scour the roadway for the debris.
The interstate was only shut down for a few minutes.
No accidents were reported.
It is unclear what the piece of debris was from.
