We were among the unlucky traveling on Rte. 135 west early Friday night in Natick when we ran into this scene of police and fire department vehicles, and an ominously dangling utility pole. It was all the talk at the Framingham watering hole that was our destination, with reports of creative driving shortcuts (ugh, left my phone at home, so had to figure things out GPS-free) and power outages.
Not much on the Natick fire or police social channels, other than a warning on the Natick Police Twitter account that the road was shut down between Kendall Lane and the Framingham line, and that detours were in place.
As a reader on our Facebook page commented: “While the utility companies are in town to fix this, can they also move the poles along Main Street?” (To read more on that situation…)
