MOBILE, Ala. -- Interstate 65 Northbound traffic was stopped for a time at midday Tuesday after power lines were down across the roadway, between Government Boulevard and Airport Boulevard.

Traffic on the adjacent service road also was affected.
Subsequently, a large amount of traffic signals were out in the area of Government Boulevard at I-65, due to downed lines.
Motorists were advised to use caution and treat intersections with non-functioning signals as four-way stops.
