GROTON — Tuesday morning proved to be a difficult one for a small section of I-95 south in Groton.
First, a crane putting a sign up on the highway knocked power lines down onto the highway. I-95 south between exits 88 and 87 was closed for a couple of hours while crews repaired the lines.
Due to the power outage in the area, Groton Public Schools decided to close for the day.
After the highway reopened, two right lanes were closed soon after in the same area due to a brush fire. It’s unknown if the fire was caused by the downed power lines.
Then, a multi-vehicle crash on I-95 between exits 89 and 88 in Groton closed the two left lanes.
