WOODWAY, Texas (KWTX) A downed power line caused a late-night traffic jam on U.S. Highway 84 west of Waco but traffic was moving again Friday.

The downed line forced authorities to close down the highway late Thursday night.

Eastbound traffic was detoured at Old Lorena Road to Chapel Road to Hewitt Drive and then back onto Highway 84.

Westbound traffic was diverted off the highway at Estates Drive and was detoured to Chapel and Old Lorena and then back onto U.S. 84.

Drivers faced delays as long as two hours early Friday.

All lanes were open again by around 6:30 a.m. Friday.
