According to the Leander Police Department, ice on the roadways, fallen tree branches and downed powers lines have forced the closure of several roads throughout the Leander area Feb. 1.
All of 183A remains closed as well as southbound on Ronald Reagan Boulevard, from RM 2243 to Crystal Falls Parkway; the 1900 block on Londonderry Drive due to a downed power line; and the low water crossing area on CR 177. Northbound on Ronald Regan, meanwhile, is limited to one lane of traffic.
The Leander Fire Department is also warning residents to steer clear of downed power lines. Per recommendations from Pedernales Electric Cooperative Inc., people should not approach within 50 feet, touch or attempt to move a downed power line or object in contact with a power line. Downed power lines can be reported at 888-883-3379 or by visiting www.pec.coop.
