I-95 in Howard will be closed for power line repairs

November 14, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Interstate 95 near Route 175 in Howard County will be closed in both directions this morning while utility crews repair a power line that was damaged in a tractor-trailer accident.

All lanes of the highway will be closed between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. with traffic allowed to pass every 15 minutes.

Delays are likely to occur, and motorists are advised to take alternative routes.

The 13,000-volt power line was knocked down about 9 a.m. Friday, when the truck hit a utility pole north of the Route 175 exit, according to state police. No one was injured, but traffic was backed up for several miles while Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews removed the power line from the road.
