The Utah Transit Authority temporarily stopped its TRAX service temporarily Monday afternoon after a suspicious package was found at the Ballpark Station.

The package, later determined to be a canister of argon, was found around 2:25 p.m. at 150 W 1300 S.

Officials from the Salt Lake City Police Department and the Salt Lake City Fire Department responded to the scene.

UTA dispatched buses to transport passengers in the affected area, between 900 S and 2100 S. TRAX service resumed at 3:30 p.m.
