Downed power lines shut down Brookshire Blvd at I-85

Brookshire Boulevard was shut down after an accident took down utility poles Thursday.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Downed power lines on Brookshire Bouleveard at I-85 caused major traffic issues Thursday. 

Downed power lines and traffic signals forced emergency crews to close both ramps to Brookshire Boulevard from I-85, as well as the overpass that crosses the interstate while repairs were made. 

The accident occurred around 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

CMPD initially tweeted that the roadway would be closed for the entire day Thursday, but crews were able to clear the road and reopen the ramps a little after 3 p.m.
