TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police are directing traffic through an intersection near downtown Tucson because a power line has fallen down, causing the traffic light to go out.

Tucson police tell KGUN9 that an area near Speedway Blvd., and Stone will be restricted in all directions for several hours.

Crews with Tucson Electric Power are working to repair the line. Right now, two people are without power because of the downed line, according to Joseph Barrios with TEP.

Drivers should avoid the area and use an alternate route this morning.

KGUN 9 On Your Side is headed to the scene. Stay with us for updates.
