Traffic came to a halt Wednesday morning after a low-hanging wire drooped over East Seventh Street by the Masonic Building. Residents had noticed the low wires for several weeks, but something caused one to drop right down into traffic.
This bus was evacuated and the street was closed between Park and Watchung avenues.
The wires turned out to be telephone cables strung from a pole on the north side of the street to the Scott Drug building. The cable man came and fixed them higher and things went back to normal.
