Cedar Lane Road is closed at Marl Pit Road while utility crews make repairs to a utility pole after a vehicle crash.

Cedar Lane Road is closed just north of Marl Pit Road in Middletown after a vehicle crashed into a utility pole.

Utility crews are continuing to work in the area.

As of 3 p.m., they estimated that the closure would be in effect for approximately two more hours, said Delaware State Police Master Cpl. Michael Austin.

School buses that use Cedar Lane Road have been detoured so drop-off times may be delayed.

Drivers are advised to expect delays in the area and seek alternate routes if possible, Austin said.
