Roadways Closed After Accident Causes Power Outage on US-169

PSO customers are without power after a large vehicle pulled power lines down on 21st street and highway 169.

According to PSO officials, 485 customers remain without power. Crews will need to do additional work to the lines before power can be restored.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid northbound US-169 at 21st St., just south of the I-44 junction. Significant delays are expected during the evening rush hour.

PSO officials are unsure when power will be restored at this time.
