MACEDONIA — A truck pulling down a cable line caused traffic backups on East Highland Road near Route 8 Monday afternoon, police Lt. Vince Yakapovich said.

Yakapovich said the cable came down at about 3 p.m. and was repaired by about 4:15 p.m. In the meantime traffic was being detoured to Route 82 as a precaution because of the possibility that the cable might have come into contact with an electric power line, he said.
