"The problem that we're facing right now is that until National Grid informs us that the power lines on these roads are dead we cannot do any work," said John Tomasz, Hamilton Department of Public Works Director. "Once we get their OK, it is a matter of a few hours to get the streets opened."
In Wenham, Police Chief Thomas Perkins said that a pine tree was leaning on the wires and the road is closed between 97 Larch Row and 135 Larch Row. That is the section of Larch Row between the railroad crossing and the Four Corners.
Initially, a Wenham Department of Public Works crew went out to remove the tree.
"We had a tree crew there but the wire was live," said Bill Tyack, Wenham DPW director.
Reopening Larch Row is a top priority, he said.
"I'm pushing for Larch Row real hard," he said.
