The tree fell Thursday afternoon and was initially blocking both lanes of traffic on the roadway. The tree has since been removed. However, the utility pole is still dangling over the southbound lane.
Wires and debris from the tree could also be seen on the ground.
The roadway has been restricted to a single lane, but traffic is moving at a stop-and-go pace in both directions.
