A section of Interstate 30 in Little Rock has been re-opened after it was temporarily closed Thursday to replace a fallen power line.

The state Department of Transportation reported at 2:40 p.m. that eastbound and westbound lanes near Chicot Road had been cleared. The closure lasted less than an hour.

The power line was one of many knocked down when a severe storm system with high winds moved through the Little Rock area Thursday morning.
