Essex Street blocked by downed tree

BANGOR – Traffic was interrupted Monday afternoon on Essex Street because of downed power lines caused by a fallen tree.

The incident occurred at 3:43 p.m. at 1214 Essex St., between Greenfield Avenue and Burleigh Road.

Bangor police Lt. Jeff Millard said the road was cleared of debris later that afternoon.

Millard said police weren’t sure the reason the tree fell, although there was no report of an accident that would have caused the tree to come down. Police were unsure whether the tree blew over in Monday’s strong winds.
