Damaged power line causes outages Friday

A damaged power line caused widespread power outages Friday afternoon and evening.

Fargo Police closed southbound traffic on 42nd Street South between Ninth Avenue and 13th Avenue around 4 p.m. The street was open to northbound traffic, but the reduction in lanes caused major traffic delays and congestion.

Xcel Energy and Fargo Police were on the scene directing traffic and working to restore power, which was back on a few hours later.
