Route 4 has reopened in Burlington after a garbage truck brought down wires, according to the state police.
The road was closed for several hours at Post Office Road while crews worked to make repairs and clear the scene on Wendesday.
The bucket on the bucket truck was up when the operator was driving and it became entangled in wires, police said. Wires came down on the truck, but the driver was not injured.
Officials said two utility poles were down, along with a transformer that was leaking fuel.
Crews from Connecticut Light & Power and hazardous material crews responded to the scene.
