Updated 2:30 pm, Thursday, June 4, 2015
Traffic on a stretch of Wilton Road remains restricted to one lane as of 2 p.m. today after a small truck this morning struck a utility pole, snapping it off and pulling down power lines.
The road was initially closed to all traffic between Newtown Turnpike and Exit 41's southbound ramp of the Merritt Parkway.
By early afternoon, however, one lane was open for alternating north- and southbound traffic.
Police warn of continuing delays through the area for several more hours.
No injuries were reported, according to police.
