Route 9 Reopens in Old Saybrook

    Sagging power lines forced the DOT to shut down Route 9 Northbound between exits 2 and 3 in Old Saybrook Thursday. This photo is of backup in the southbound lanes.

    Route 9 was closed in between exits 2 and 3 because high electrical lines were sagging in the heat, according to Connecticut Light and Power and the Department of Transportation.

    The closure affected both sides of the highway from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. while CL&P crews worked to repair the lines.

    CL&P had 13 crews working on the sagging lines.
