Northfield Fire Chief Skip Dunnell told 22News that Verizon crews worked to repair the lines that came down as a result of the crash on Route 2 near Factory Hollow Road. Dunnell had originally estimated that service would not be restored until about 6:00 P.M., but service was back by about 1:00.
All 911 calls were automatically diverted to the Northfield Fire Department during the outage, and residents were asked to call 911 on a cell phone to contact the police department, or go to the police department directly.
The crash has shut down Route 2 between Adams Road and the Gill-Montague Bridge, and that stretch is not expected to be re-opened until Tuesday.
