The 700 block of Soderquist Road has been blocked off to through traffic as firefighters help police divert traffic from a live power line.
Soderquist has been blocked between Park and Chestnut streets. Traffic on southbound Soderquist is being diverted onto Chestnut and northbound Soderquist is being diverted onto Park.
Up the road, the Main Street and Soderquist Road intersection is currently experiencing an outage at the traffic signal.
A live 12,000 volt power line near Julian Street and Soderquist Road was reported around noon, and firefighters are keeping residents more than 50 feet away due to concern that the ground has been charged from the power line.
Firefighters are awaiting the response from Turlock Irrigation District to repair the power line.
