BATON ROUGE - For the third time in just over a month, low-hanging power lines have caused the shutdown of a major roadway in the capital area.

The incident was reported on I-12 just before Range Avenue around noon Friday. DOTD says it took crews roughly two hours to clear the roadway. I-12 has since been reopened.

There is currently no word on what caused the lines to drop.

Last month, power lines fell across different parts of I-12 twice within the span of a few days. One of those incidents shut down the roadway for several hours and led to charges against the truck driver who caused the jam.
