Back to Normal Today After Downed Power Lines Cause Delays Monday

A truck hauling heavy equipment hit a power pole Monday and that knocked down power lines. Goff Mountain Road in the 300 block was shut down in both directions in Cross Lanes along with West Washington Street after the power lines came down. Someone inside a vehicle was able to escaped unharmed after cable lines fell on top of it, but drivers in the area faced delays for several hours, and those who live on Brick Lane and Old Goff Mountain Road had delayed access to their homes while crews worked on repairs. Then accidents on West Washington Street and 40th Street in Nitro caused additional problems. Part of Goff Mountain Road near Interstate 64 was shut down for about twelve hours, but all should be back to normal today.
