Both lanes reopened on Broadway in Madison after downed wire caused closure

MADISON, Wis. –  Crews responded to a downed wire on East Broadway near the intersection of Edna Taylor Parkway in Madison today. 

The downed wire caused the closure of both lanes of westbound traffic on East Broadway. One lane of traffic has been reopened. Repairs are expected to be completed this afternoon. 

The incident occurred after an equipment failure, which caused the wire to drop on the road.
