      Low hanging power lines prompt US 61 closure

      Traffic backed up along Hwy. 61 during the closure.


      North and southbound US 61 was closed for a brief time south of the US 54 overpass near Bowling Green due to low hanging power lines.


      The roadway reopened just after 3 p.m.


      The power lines were close to the ground after a car struck a utility pole.


      No information has been released at this time regarding the driver, but stay here for updates.
