Phone cable down across US Rt. 22
Thu. Aug 21st 2014

At approx 14:20 C-46 and S-4 responded to investigate a call of a phone line down across all lanes of US Rt. 22 close to exit 3. Upon arrival we found a approximately 3 inch in diameter cable caught on a tractor trailer and lying across east and west bound lanes. Traffic was stopped in both directions until it was determined to be an outdated phone cable consisting of thousands of copper phone lines. Once this was determined the cable was cut and the roadway was opened to normal traffic. The cause of the cable dropping onto the road was found to be a failed telephone pole on McKimms Ridge Road overlooking US Rt. 22. Weirton FD also assisted on scene with E-3.
