MORRISTOWN, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Route U.S. 60 has reopened in Morristown due to downed power lines, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

According to DPS, the eastbound lanes were closed since 2:46 a.m. on Sunday. Arizona’s Family is working to learn more about what caused the downed power lines. However, windy conditions and monsoon storms have kept crews throughout the Valley as fires and power outages are reported throughout central Arizona.
