Downed lines across Bob Wade cleared


The Madison County Sheriff's Department closed Bob Wade Lane from Mt. Lebanon to Derwent Lane early Tuesday morning, because of power lines that were down across the road.

We're told a tree knocked down about a mile of wires. Huntsville Utilities says this was the cause of a power outage Monday night in the Liberty Hill area.

According to Huntsville Utilities, power at the Liberty Hill substation was interrupted around 9:50 p.m. Monday, when high winds blew a large tree into power line salong Bob Wade Lane, bringing them down into the roadway.

The utility says the substation was back online around 10:35 pm, restoring power to the outage area, with the exception of approximately 4 customers.

Crews continued working through the night and completed repairs around 4:00 a.m. All power has been restored.

Bob Wade Lane has been reopened.
