Interstate 435 was closed down for a while Thursday afternoon after strong winds knocked down a power line near Roe Avenue.
Crews closed westbound I-435 about 1 p.m. using a rolling roadblock so that the power line could be removed.
About 1:30 p.m., I-435 in both directions were shut down.
The highway was reopened about 1:40 p.m. after the power line was removed.
