All Lanes Reopened On 710 Freeway After Power Lines Prompt Shutdown

 


LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Caltrans officials have reopened all lanes of the northbound Long Beach (710) Freeway, just south of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway, after downed power lanes forced crews to shut down all but one lane.

The closure was ordered at 1:53 p.m. Monday when reports of wires on the freeway lanes were reported, says Officer Jennifer Connolly of the California Highway Patrol.

The lanes were reopened shortly after 4 p.m. but traffic remained slow.
