Wind Seemingly Cause Of Fallen Brookline Traffic Signal That Shut Down Route 9 East

BROOKLINE (CBS) — A traffic light on a metal pole was apparently knocked down by the wind Friday morning, prompting lane closures and traffic delays on Route 9 East.

Police shut down Route 9 East after police say the wind seemingly felled the signal between Cypress and Washington Streets at about 9 a.m. By 11 a.m., one lane of traffic was open again as crews cleaned up debris.
