I-20 moving again after downed power lines halt Douglasville traffic

Traffic is moving again after downed power lines stalled I-20 in Douglasville for more than two hours Tuesday afternoon. 

 

Police posted shortly after 1:30 p.m. that power lines had fallen across Douglas Boulevard and I-20, shutting down the eastbound and westbound lanes.

 

The closure snarled traffic as westbound motorists squeezed by in a single lane, Douglasville police Maj. J.R. Davidson told AJC.com.

It’s still unclear what caused the lines to fall, but Georgia Power crews cut power to the lines blocking the interstate. Officials reported no outages in the area and said crews will return around midnight to repair the line, Channel 2 Action News reported.
