TRAFFIC ALERT: Columbia Ave. closed after driver damages utility poles

By BROOKE WANSER

Several utility poles were badly damaged Friday morning after a driver traversing Columbia Avenue fell asleep at the wheel.

According to a release from the Franklin Police Department, Middle Tennessee Electric and AT&T will immediately make repairs to the damaged utilities.

Columbia Avenue will be closed in both directions, from Downs Boulevard to Battle Avenue, about a quarter mile stretch of road.

This closure will last through the morning rush hour, which will result in considerable congestion on Columbia Avenue, Downs Boulevard, Battle Avenue, and W. Main Street.
