Mt. Auburn Street Closed Saturday Morning After MBTA Bus Takes Down Wires

According to the Watertown Fire Department, Mt. Auburn St. was shut down for about an hour.

Part of Mount Auburn Street was shut down for roughly an hour Saturday morning after an MBTA bus took down some wires near Watertown Square. 

According to the Watertown Fire Department, a bus turning from Main Street to Mount Auburn Street took the turn too fast, pulling down the wires and power lines on which the buses run.

Crews arrived on the scene around 11:15 a.m., the Fire Department said, and shut down Mount Auburn Street from Watertown Square to Summer Street. 

The road was shut down for roughly an hour while crews repaired the wires. Both vehicle and pedestrian traffic was rerouted during the repairs.
