CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A telephone in Cedar Rapids closed 15th Avenue SW for hours.

City crews say the telephone pole was down along 15th Avenue SW between 4th Street SW and 6th Street SW,  sometime before 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

Work on repairing the pole took several hours and traffic had to take another route.

The city expected to reopen 15th Avenue SW by the end of the workday Wednesday.
