Texas 71 near the Y in Oak Hill was closed for more than two hours Fri­day af­ter­noon be­cause of sev­eral downed util­ity lines, a Texas Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion spokesman said.

A trac­tor-trailer hit the lines, which in­clude tele­phone and power lines, about noon, forc­ing the clo­sure in both di­rec­tions be­tween Fletcher Lane and Cov­ered Bridge Drive west of the Y as emer­gency per­son­nel cleared the area, spokesman John Hurt said.
