Downed telecommunications lines forced Reading police to close part of Ronald Reagan Highway for most of Thursday evening.

The highway reopened around 9:30 — two and a half hours earlier than police had predicted that afternoon, when they estimated the closure would last until midnight.

The downed lines belonged to telecommunications companies and not, as was initially reported by police, to a power company.

Spectrum spokesman Mike Pedelty confirmed they included lines from Spectrum. He said he could not confirm whether the closure had been caused by a crash.
