This story has been updated.

A stretch of I-84 has reopened after hundreds protesting police-related deaths entered the highway.

The closure, in both directions, was between exits 4 and 5 in Danbury on Wednesday, June 3 and lasted about an hour, starting just before 2:30 p.m.

The protest began on Main Street early in the afternoon with more than 1,000 people.

A smaller amount, but still in the hundreds, then proceeded to the interstate.

Other protests are planned for this afternoon in Fairfield County in New Canaan and Stamford.
