Northbound and southbound I-5 lanes have reopened after downed phone lines caused traffic to be stopped for over an hour this afternoon.

Traffic was brought to a standstill when a downed telephone line was reported around 3:50 p.m.

A small vegetation fire started as a result of the downed lines near the Antelope Blvd off-ramp.

Caltrans put detours in place, with traffic exiting southbound at the Adobe Rd. off-ramp and northbound at the Antelope Blvd. off-ramp.
