SEATTLE -- A busy intersection is reopening on Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood after crews worked overnight to repair downed trolley lines.

The intersection at Broadway Avenue and East Madison Street re-opened just before 7 a.m. Tuesday after being closed for nearly 16 hours.

Around 2 p.m. Monday a dump truck caught the overhead trolley lines while passing through the intersection, causing extensive damage. Roads had to be shut down because of the danger of the live wires on the ground. Cars and buses hand to be rerouted.

After the road was reopened, traffic was reportedly getting through and moving in all directions.
