CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — All lines of traffic are now open on FM 1431 after downed power lines had morning traffic heading a different direction earlier on Thursday.

City officials say it is both a downed Pedernales Electric Co-op power line and AT&T phone line. This is at RM 1431 East near U.S. Highway 183 at 560 East Whitestone Blvd. Cedar Park officials say 689 meters have been affected, and they expect the power lines to be restored at 9 a.m.

That means drivers can’t pass through in either direction, and police are asking people to take a different way on their morning drive if they usually head through this area. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
