Downed power lines close westbound US 64 near Apex

Posted May 28, 2013

— Authorities closed westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 64 near Apex on Tuesday because of downed power lines and a fire in the median.

Emergency personnel responded to the area, near the intersection with Jenks Road, about noon.

It wasn't clear what caused the lines to fall or what caused the fire. 

North Carolina Department of Transportation officials said the lanes could remain closed until 5 p.m. They said cars near Interstate 540 were getting by in a right turn lane.
