Busy Alpharetta road reopens after downed power pole closed it for hours

ALPHARETTA — A busy road in Alpharetta has reopened after an overnight crash caused major delays during the morning rush hour.

Highway 9 at Mayfield Road was blocked after a car hit a power pole, knocking it down into the intersection.

Channel 2's Tom Regan is at the scene as crews work on the damage. The road reopened shortly before 12:30 p.m.

We're speaking with local businesses that were impacted by the outages, on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4 p.m.

The road closure was a big inconvenience to people trying to get to shops and businesses in the area, including daycare.

“Normally we just drop him off, but today we took a little venture and walked up,” parent Kim Fullerton told Regan.
