Travel restrictions are in place on some westside roads as crews work to repair power lines downed by Monday storms.

In all, twelve poles were knocked down yesterday.

The city anticipates it will take a few days for Tucson Electric Power to complete all repairs.

As a result, Ironwood Hill Drive is closed from Shannon Road to Ironwood Ridge Drive, just west of Silverbell Road.

Also, the intersection of Anklam Road and Greasewood Road is closed to through traffic.

The intersection should reopen by Wednesday evening, July 3, 2013. Bicyclists and pedestrians are cautioned to refrain from bypassing the road closures and entering the work zones.
