Tree down, closes 41st Street near Interstate 83 in North Baltimore

A large tree branch has fallen on a busy street in North Baltimore, and officials are urging motorists to seek alternate routes for the Wednesday morning commute.

The branch was laying across 41st Street just east of the bridge over Interstate 83 as crews were responding around 7 a.m. Wednesday.

A city crew used a chainsaw and a grapple truck to clear the branch from the road. The road reopened about 8 a.m., according to the Department of Transportation.
