Traffic Tie Ups Expected On Hillsborough Street In Raleigh

Posted April 25, 2005 4:04 a.m. EDT

— Raleigh police are warning motorists who normally travel on Hillsborough Street through its intersection with Cox Avenue to consider other routes Monday afternoon.

Repair work related to a downed utility pole at the intersection has reduced travel to one lane in each direction.

Trucks and other tall vehicles are being rerouted due to low-hanging wires.

At some point during repairs, police said it is expected that all lanes will be closed for about 15 minutes. The work should be completed by early evening.
