Avon Mountain Reopened, West Hartford Police Say

Avon Mountain was closed to motorists headed to Hartford during the morning commute Tuesday, police dispatchers said.

A utility pole fire on the West Hartford side of the mountain was the culprit. It prompted the closure of the eastbound lanes, they said Tuesday morning. The road was reopened later in the morning.

Motorists headed to the capital city were advised to take an alternative route, such as Route 4 in Farmington to I-84.
