CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - A traffic light is hanging down and blocking the northbound Interstate 55 on-ramp.

According to Cape Girardeau police on scene, a Missouri Department of Transportation mower caught a guy wire on a traffic light pole, making the pole lean inwards and lowering the traffic lights.

This made the on-ramp inaccessible.
