Motorists are asked to use alternate routes if possible.

Newschannel 3 has a crew at the scene, where it appears a bus has crashed into a pole.

Police say a vehicle tried to merge from the left lane, but didn’t see the bus. The bus swerved to miss that vehicle and struck a pole.

Passengers were kept on the bus until power could be cut to the lines.

Those passengers are now off the bus.
