    The lanes became blocked at about 8:30 a.m. Drivers were told to use alternate routes. 

    Officials are not sure what caused the pole to go down. SDOT confirmed it belonged to them, and they were on scene working with SPD to determine why the pole fell. 

    The ramps reopened shortly before 11 a.m.
