Subject: TRAFFIC ADVISORY ALERT - 635 West Falmouth Highway 
Utility Pole Hanging Over Roadway - Closed to through Traffic.

On Wednesday, June, 19 2019 01:12 hrs Officers of the Falmouth Police Department responded to the area of #635 West Falmouth Highway for a Utility Pole hanging over the roadway. Upon arrival it was found that a large tree branch had snapped and was hanging on the wires forcing the pole over the roadway. Upon recommendation from Eversource the road is closed between Old Dock Road and Westmoreland Drive for routine traffic, however emergency vehicles can pass through.

EVERSOURCE personnel are on scene replacing the utility pole. At this time it is unknown when the road will be reopened to traffic.

The FPD is highly recommending and encouraging the public to seek alternate routes within the town which would allow them to clearly negotiate around this traffic obstacle and they should take into consideration the extra time to do so.
