ROY, Utah -- I-15 has reopened in Roy after a closure sparked by downed power lines early Thursday morning.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a construction worker snagged two live wires in a median while working with some equipment, sending the lines onto northbound lanes of I-15 just after midnight.

Troopers said several cars drove over the lines before they could close the road. There were no injuries or damage reported as a result of those motorists crossing the downed lines.

The interstate was closed for about three hours while Rocky Mountain Power worked to clear those lines.

UHP said if you see a downed line: do not touch it.
