Shortly before noon today, high winds blew a large tree down on the southwest corner of the intersection of 16th and Conner streets (Indiana 32/38) in Noblesville. The tree took down power lines north and south of Conner Street and the westbound traffic signal pole arm at the intersection.
Currently, 16th Street is closed from Logan to Maple streets. Conner Street is closed between 14th and 17th Streets. The east-west alley between 16th and 14th streets north of Conner Street also is closed to traffic.
The City of Noblesville and INDOT crews have installed traffic control in the area and are working the situation with utility companies. The city has placed advanced warning on Conner Street on the west side of Noblesville to alert through traffic of the closure in an attempt to assist eastbound motorists.
This is the only roadway that has any interference because of today’s storm.
