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.
