Agate Hall and Agate Street were closed for approximately an hour and a half Tuesday afternoon in response to a bomb threat phoned into the Eugene Police Department.

Officers and other safety personnel responded just after 2:30 p.m., first evacuating the building then investigating the validity of the threat.

Ultimately, the scene was cleared with nothing suspicious found after law enforcement was able to search the facility.

Agate Hall will reopen for classes and activities on Wednesday.
