DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Motorists were being urged to be cautious on the Dallas North Tollway Monday afternoon after power lines fell across the road.

By 3:00 p.m., all lanes of the Dallas North Tollway near Trinity Mills were reopened.

The North Texas Tollway Authority tweeted earlier in the day, the lines were down near Trinity Mills. They said it was caused by a “large truck.”

Traffic was reported down to one lane at Briargrove Lane and said to be backed up to Belt Line Road.

According to reports, due to the power lines being damaged, traffic lights in the immediate area were out as well.

In images captured by CBSDFW photojournalists, wires could be seen hanging low to the ground over the highway.
