After a World War II bomb was found in Heidelberg, the police cleared the surrounding area on Thursday.
It was not immediately clear how many people were affected.
Fire brigade and police forces spoke to people directly, as a police spokesman said.
In the area are therefore both residential and commercial settlements.
Heidelberg - People have to expect traffic delays and diversions.
An exact radius for the barrier has not yet been determined, the spokesman said.
The explosive ordnance clearance service should decide how to proceed.
According to the information, it is also in the room that the war relic, which weighs several hundred kilograms, will only be defused later and people can go back to their homes - until the planned evacuation for the purpose of deactivation.
That depends primarily on the condition of the bomb from World War II, the spokesman said.
When exactly the experts will decide that was initially not foreseeable.
In the afternoon they were still on the way.
