39th Street Detour Due To Tree Leaning On Wires (Updated)

Update: The tree has been cut down. :( Thank you for your years of service, tree, we appreciated it.

Heads up, you’re going to want to avoid using 39th Street as a way to drive across Fremont for the rest of the day. A tree has come loose and is leaning on power lines at 39th and Evanston, causing SDOT to close the road at that juncture.

According to tipsters, the power is also down in the area. SDOT is on the case.

Cars coming from Aurora are being directed down Evanston currently.
