Debris causes traffic nightmare in Avon

Posted: Updated:

A tree and wires down on Avon Mountain have created a traffic jam Tuesday afternoon.

Two lanes are open in the area of Albany Avenue between Dayton Road and Mountain Brook Road, police said. Motorists are being re-routed onto Mountain Brook Road.

Only one lane is open in each direction, police said.

Wind is believed to be the cause of the problem.

It is unclear how long it will take to clear the debris.
