Ayalon Partially Blocked by Downed Power Lines

The northbound lanes of the Ayalon freeway in Tel Aviv were blocked, Thursday afternoon, just beyond the Rokach Interchange, due to two electric wires that fell on the highway.

Electric-company crews were able to reach the scene in short order with help from the police despite the resulting congestion and remove the lines from the railroad tracks between the northbound and southbound lanes of tracking, permitting rail service to continue.
