Northbound Durham Freeway reopens; southbound expected to shortly

Dec. 13, 2013 @ 11:30 AM

Both northbound lanes of N.C. 147 that were shut down from Briggs Avenue south this morning have been re-opened. One southbound lane is about to be re-opened.

The shutdown was caused by power lines in the roadway.

It's the second time in two days that a road in Durham has been closed because power lines fell. The incident remains under investigation.
