Phone and cable lines fell on Interstate 45 in south Dallas County, forcing the shutdown of both the north and southbound lanes.
The lines fell across both directions of I-45 at Wintergreen Road in Hutchins at about 2:15 Thursday afternoon, according Laura Weaver with the Texas Department of Transportation. The road was reopen by 6 p.m.
Oncor crews were on the scene with TxDOT, but determined the lines were not power lines, but phone and cable lines.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The road is now back open.
