CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Motorists who typically drive on East Boulevard near the University Circle neighborhood were forced to find an alternative route for the Friday morning rush hours.

A large tree fell overnight on East Boulevard near Wade Park Avenue.

The fallen tree brought utility wires down with it and forced emergency crews to block a stretch of East Boulevard in both directions.

19 News crews were on the scene as numerous cars continued to drive down East Boulevard only to run directly into the downed tree and road closure.

Tree-clearing crews were able to open the roadway up before 8:30 a.m.
