A patrol car blocks a portion of College Street after a tree fell on Monday.

A downed tree closed a portion of College Street on Monday.

The tree fell just past Terrace Place coming from North Green Street, and had a portion of the road closed between Terrace Place and Collett Street while Morganton Public Safety waited on Morganton Public Works to arrive and clear the tree at noon. 

At 12:45 p.m., the portion of the road still was closed. 

Use an alternate route and use caution in the area.
