PHILADELPHIA -

A section of I-95 at Cottman Avenue reopened after it was closed to allow PECO crews to remove damaged utility lines.

Crews from PECO and PennDOT closed the northbound lanes of I-95 and the southbound lanes around Cottman Avenue around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday. The closure lasted for nearly an hour.

A PECO spokesperson tells FOX 29 the lines were damaged by a crane that was working in the area earlier in the day.
