Downtown Intersection Closed All Day
An intersection in downtown Asheville will be shut-down all day after a traffic light fell this morning, shortly after 5:30 a.m.
The intersection of North Lexington Avenue and West Walnut Street is where the pole fell. Crews are working to repair the light as quickly as possible.
North Lexington Avenue, both directions, is blocked near I-240. A couple options to avoid this intersection, are to exit onto College Street then take Rankin Avenue, or continue on Broadway Street to I-240.
