FOXBORO (CBS) – Part of I-495 in Foxboro was briefly shut down while fire crews battle an electrical fire on the Route 106 overpass.

The fire, which appeared to be in a utility pole, shut down Route 106 as well.

Shortly after State Police tweeted that the highway was shut down, cars could be seen traveling along the road again.

Officials are urging people to avoid the area if possible and to seek alternative routes.
