Lake City Way has reopened after Burnaby RCMP and the Burnaby Fire Department determined a suspicious package was not a danger to the public.

Workers unloading a truck on July 28 found an envelope containing a white powdery substance and called the fire department, according to Burnaby Mounties.

Lake City Way south to Lougheed Highway was temporarily closed as a precaution. The substance was identified and deemed not hazardous and the road reopened shortly afterwards.
