Part of Monterey Street in SLO blocked after semi snags cable lines

Traffic in the 2000 block of Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo is partially blocked, due to cable lines being knocked down by a tractor-trailer earlier Wednesday, according to a news release from the San Luis Obispo Police Department.

Northbound Highway 101 commuters leaving the city are encouraged to use the California on-ramp.

Crews from AT&T are at the scene replacing one utility pole that snapped Wednesday when the trailer became tangled in the cable lines.

Traffic will be affected until at least 7 p.m.
