The intersection of Route 25 and Route 111 in Trumbull has reopened after a crash brought down power lines, causing a power outage and loss of traffic signals.
Drivers were asked to avoid the area for the entirety of the day Saturday. Officials said traffic reopened at approximately 10 p.m.
Police said a dump truck collided with power lines and damaged several utility poles during an overnight paving project on Route 111 between the Route 25 expressway and the Monroe town line. There was a loss of power to all nearby traffic control signals, authorities added.
The Route 25 and Route 111 intersection was without power, causing traffic delays in the area. Officials said traffic lights are now functioning in their normal capacity, as the utility poles and power lines have been replaced and power has been restored, according to police.
Officials said traffic flow has returned to normal and detours around the area are no longer in effect.
