WOODWAY, TX — Highway 84 in Woodway is now open.

It was closed due to a contractor striking a main power line Thursday night.

The Woodway Public Safety Department said the contractor struck the power line and fiber optic cable around 10:52 p.m. It took down the lines, and they were laying across the highway blocking traffic in both directions.

It was expected to be repaired until at least 5 a.m.

Traffic coming eastbound into Woodway is being redirected down Old Lorena Road to Chapel or I-35. Westbound traffic is being diverted to Ritchie Road and Chapel.

Officials are asking drivers to take alternate routes.
