URBANDALE, Iowa — The Urbandale Police Department is advising drivers to avoid a heavily traveled intersection Wednesday.
Sgt. Gary Lang says a contractor doing underground work at Douglas Avenue and NW 86th Street accidentally cut a power line to one of the traffic light signals.
The line was cut sometime before 3 p.m. and repairs are expected to take several hours.
Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes this afternoon and evening to avoid delays, Lang said.
