SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Members of the Suffolk Department of Public Works are currently on the scene of a downed traffic signal pole Monday evening.
The downed pole was reported at the intersection of College Drive and Lakeview Parkway around 3:20 p.m. Officials believe the incident was caused by high winds Monday afternoon.
A 10 On Your Side viewer sent a video of the pole swinging as cars drove by underneath prior to the incident.
The northbound lanes of College Drive in the area are currently closed with a detour in place.
The closure is expected to last 2 to 4 hours as crews work on a temporary repair. Officials say a temporary traffic signal trailer will be put in place until Tuesday.
