BRIDGEPORT (WJRT) (11/17/2017) - A busy section of Dixie Highway in Saginaw County road was partially closed around 11:30 a.m. due to power lines on the road.

Saginaw County 911 said a semi truck pulled down some power lines and snapped three utility poles on Dixie Highway just east of I-75 between Bridgeport and Birch Run.

Dixie Highway was closed in both directions until the power lines can be removed from the road. Traffic lights were reported out just south of Bridgeport, as well.

Consumers Energy was reporting fewer than 100 customers without power around the Dixie Highway interchange with I-75. Consumers expected delays in the area would last for several hours this afternoon.
