Downed Power Lines Cause NEMO Road Closures Tuesday
Downed power lines were to blame for a couple of road closures in northeast Missouri Tuesday.
The Missouri Department of Transportation reported a vehicle hit a power line on Highway 61 just north of Bowling Green about 9 a.m. Tuesday, closing all four lanes of the highway for a little over three hours.
MODOT also reported power lines in the road after a vehicle incident caused a closure of the Highway 36 South Outer Road between Shinn Lane and Fiddlestiks restaurant west of Hannibal about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Officials said it took over four hours to get that stretch of road reopened.
