Lines down, traffic rerouted near U Village



Thanks to a tip from Silver about some problems in the area of NE 50th and 20th NE.  Some lines are down and traffic is being forced to go various ways.  The issue has been ongoing since at least 7:30am today.  We’ve found out the lines belong to Qwest and we’re trying to get more information.  We’ll pass along any new details.

1:45pm update:  Qwest tells us that a tall vehicle snagged four aerial lines hung between two buildings, pulling the cables from their clamps and down across the road. It has impacted traffic, but there are no service disruptions as the cables themselves weren’t cut or damaged. No word on when the work might be completed.
