Route 109 eastbound in West Babylon shut after accident, officials say

Route 109 at Old Farmingdale Road in West Babylon remained closed eastbound Thursday afternoon after an early morning accident with a downed utility pole, officials said.

A Suffolk County police spokeswoman said police received a call about the downed pole at 4:37 a.m. Traffic was then diverted onto Old Farmingdale Road, police said.

The road was closed in both directions because of an accident with a pole and downed wires, according to an alert from the state Department of Transportation.

At about 2 p.m. one lane was open westbound and the other was closed while both eastbound lanes were closed, police said.

No other information was immediately available.
