Traffic on Kennewick Ave. in the West 900 block had to be diverted for hours Tuesday night after one of the huge vintage old trees fell, blocking the entire four lane road.

Police arrived in the mid evening to find the tree, which had been on the south side of road, had fallen. Police units cordoned off the entire 900 block until city crews could remove it.

Fortunately, no cars were hit, no on injured, and no power lines taken down.
