CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Crews are working to pick up downed cable lines that shut down a portion of Lee Highway Thursday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the Chattanooga Fire Department said a tractor-trailer somehow ripped cable lines off a utility poll, shortly before 1:00 p.m. 

Drivers are asked to avoid Lee Highway between Bonny Oaks Drive and Walker Road because it is closed.

Repairs could take hours. Crews could possibly finish them by 10:00 p.m.
