Middle Street in Bristol is closed after a crash that damaged a utility pole and brought down wires.
The northbound side of Middle Street, which is also Route 229, is shut down at the Enterprise Drive intersection and the southbound side of the road is closed at the Cross Street intersection.
Crews from Eversource are repairing the pole and the work is expected to be done late this morning or early this afternoon, according to police.
Drivers heading north should go left onto Enterprise Drive, and right onto Century Drive, follow the road to Cross Street, take a right onto Cross Street and return to Route 229.
Taking a left onto Cross Street will bring you out to Lake Ave. whereupon you take a right and follow Lake Ave. to the RT. 229 intersection.
For motorists heading southbound on RT. 229, take a right onto Cross Street and then a left onto Century Drive. Follow Century Drive to the Enterprise intersection and take a left onto Enterprise Drive which will return you to RT. 229.
Motorists are urged to show patience while these repairs are being made.
