Lights turning back on in downtown Cleveland, explosion under investigation

Around 2:15 p.m. Thursday, an underground explosion at 2122 East 2nd Street blew off a manhole cover in downtown Cleveland.

The incident caused major traffic light outages for more than an hour. Around 3:45 p.m., Cleveland Public Power says all of the lights have been turned back on except for one, which is getting a generator for now. It's located by Horseshoe Casino and the Tilted Kilt.

Cleveland Public Power is still investigating what caused the explosion.

Traffic remains slow through downtown. If you come to an intersection with traffic lights that are out or flashing, remember to treat it as a four-way stop.
