ATLANTA — A suspicious package found underneath an overpass may be a stick of dynamite, Atlanta police said.

The package was discovered by a group of Dept. of Transportation workers while inspecting a bridge near the intersection of Hollywood Road and Hightower Avenue in northwest Atlanta.

A representative for Atlanta-Fire Rescue said the package had wires sticking out of it. Police said the elements may have been left over from construction.

Four people were evacuated from a nearby business, and officials said the area is not heavily populated with homes.Refresh this story on for more updates.
