ITHACA, N.Y. –– Downed utility poles and power lines have closed down traffic on Dubois Road in the town of Ulysses Tuesday.

The 3000 block of Dubois Road is closed in both directions between Woolf Lane and Hinging Post Road because of downed poles and power lines across the roadway caused by a snowplow accident.

Crews are in the process of replacing the poles, and it’s estimated the work will take six to seven hours to complete.

Authorities are asking drivers to find an alternative route for the duration of the road closure.
