Traffic Alert: Avoid Forest Ave/Marginal Way/Park Ave Intersection During Tonight's Commute


An accident this afternoon in which a tractor trailer took out a telephone pole at Preble/Oxford Streets has caused power outages in the area. Power was originally estimated to be out until 7-8pm, however, current estimates from CMP show it may be back on between 5pm and 6pm.

Traffic signals in the area are out, most notably at Forest Ave/Marginal Way/Park Ave intersections. Because this will cause major disruptions to the evening commute, the City is urging citizens to seek alternate routes, if possible.
