I-20 Shutdown 04/16/2019

Multiple lanes of I-20 were shut down after power lines fell on the road on 4/16/2019. 

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga (CBS46) -- Traffic is moving again on I-20 in Douglasville, after crews had to shut it down for about an hour this afternoon to clear downed power lines.

The backup happened near the Chapel Hill Road exit.

A wooden power pole broke, sending the lines across the interstate. Police don't know why it happened.  There's no evidence a car hit it.
