Old Lyme – Whippoorwill Road is closed between Route 1 and Mile Creek Road after a tree brought down a power line this afternoon.

Emergency dispatch personnel said the roadway has been closed since about 3:30 p.m. Connecticut Light & Power is on scene replacing the utility pole, which could take 4 to 6 hours to replace and repair, the dispatcher said. The downed pole is closer to Mile Creek Road, the dispatcher said, but the entire roadway is closed.
