The pole was replaced early Sunday morning according to workers on the scene. No power, cable or telephone service interruptions resulted from the accident, according to workers on the scene. Each company had to send workers to transfer their wires onto the new pole. Jacksonville was re-opened Sunday afternoon, but due to heavy rains on Sunday, as of press time the transference of wires had not yet been completed.
