US-2 south of Libby closure: now open


MISSOULA, Mont. - KECI  received an e-mail from Montana Department of Transportation early Wednesday morning....telling us that US highway 2 was closed about 8 miles south of Libby because of a power pole lying across the highway.  When we spoke with the sheriff's office, they told us that the pole was on fire, but the line hadn't dropped yet.

A detour was in place at the Hammer cutoff, and the fire department is on the scene to re-direct travelers from going under the line. 

The highway re-opened this morning at 8 a.m.
