CLINTON, Conn. (WTNH)– A road in Clinton has reopened Tuesday morning after a large tree fell onto it.

The Clinton Department of Public Works posted on their Facebook page that Partridge Lane was closed to traffic in both directions due to the downed tree.

Drivers were urged to avoid the area until further notice. However, about three hours later, the road was reopened to traffic after crews cleared it from the scene.

There is no word on what brought down the tree.
