PLAINFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

Plainfield police blamed storm conditions for a broken pole that closed a road on Monday.

They said the pole broke on Norwich Road near its intersection with Old Norwich Road.

Police closed the road between Lathrop Road and Mill Brook Road.

They said it would remain that way for some time because of the utility work.

However, they expected one lane of the road to open later Tuesday morning.

Post-tropical storm Hermine was forecasted to bring windy conditions and scattered showers through the holiday weekend and into Tuesday and Wednesday.
