SAN MARCOS, Texas – A down telecom line caused traffic problems on Interstate 35 in San Marcos on Friday.
That San Marcos Police Department reported around 3:40 p.m. that all lanes on I-35 were reopened after crews, along with SMPD and the San Marcos Fire Department, lifted the shut down line off the roadway.
That City of San Marcos first said around 2:45 p.m. that all lanes were closed both northbound and southbound between McCarty Lane and Wonder World Drive after an 18-wheeler shut down the line.
At 2:50 p.m., officials said crews were still at the scene and were working to reopen the road “as soon as possible.”
