GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety says that the 7th Street bridge is fully open once more after someone crashed into a power pole, snapping a power line and knocking out power to nearby areas.

"7th Street is completely open! The GPDPS would like to thank the citizens for their patience in this matter and please drive carefully," the agency said.

The pervious update from GPDPS reported that the eastbound lane on the 7th Street bridge was open, reduced to single-lane traffic only. GPDPS said that it would be "a few hours" before the roadway could be opened completely. Initially 7th Street was closed down at Park Street to SE M Street due to the downed power line.

Pacific Power's website says power has been restored to most of the customers in the area. At one point over 1,400 customers were reportedly without power.

"There is a live power line snapped and a hazard," GPDPS said in its initial post reporting the incident. "Please find alternative routes and avoid the area, which has caused power outages in the area. An update will notify citizens when the roadway is open."
