All WB I-580 lanes reopened in Livermore

February 23, 2010 1:25:50 PM PST
Westbound Interstate 580 is open again through Livermore after being shut down for at least two hours.

The CHP closed the lanes after a construction crane clipped some power lines and pulled them down onto the roadway about 4:00 Tuesday morning.

The incident brought the busy commute in that area to a standstill until PG&E crews could de-energize the line and remove the wire.

The incident also knocked out power to about 500 people living near-by. Most now have their power restored.
