LUMBERTON, N.C. (WNCN) – Interstate-95 was closed in both directions for about five hours Sunday in Robeson County, according to an alert issued by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The alert, which was sent out just after 10 a.m. Sunday, cited low-hanging power lines as the cause for the closure.

NCDOT said the interstate is expected to reopen by 2 p.m. but later said the closure would last through 4 p.m.

The highway finally reopened around 3:15 p.m.

A detour was set up while the highway closed.
