A downed Comcast service line closed Interstate 81 near the Holiday Inn in Martinsburg for more than an hour and Friday afternoon, causing substantial congestion along the highway, U.S. 11 and connecting routes, Berkeley County Sheriff Kenneth Lemaster Jr. said. The highway was reopened about 3:30 p.m., after the downed line was reported just after 2 p.m., according to Lemaster, who expected traffic conditions would remain congested until about 5 p.m. Supports for the downed utility line apparently failed due to windy conditions, but the wire did not break, Lemaster said.
