90 Freeway shut down near Marina del Rey
All lanes of the 90 Freeway in the Marina del Rey area were closed Monday afternoon because of a downed phone line, authorities said.
Both eastbound and westbound lanes near where the 90 Freeway meets Culver Boulevard were closed just after 3 p.m. Authorities are still trying to figure out which phone company is responsible for the toppled line.
The closure is expected to be cleared within the next couple of hours, said California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Cracraft.
Eastbound traffic is being routed onto Culver Boulevard. Westbound motorists are exiting onto Centinela Avenue, Cracraft said.
No one was hurt when the line went down. It’s unclear what caused it to fall.
