Xcel Energy replaced a power pole on Thursday near the dam on Highway 73, blocking one lane and snarling traffic for most of the day.

According to Xcel spokeswoman Michelle Aguayo, a driver hit the pole over the April 6 weekend and drove off. Someone else called Xcel on April 8 to report the damaged pole. The whole pole needed to be replaced.

Xcel completed its portion of the work on Thursday, but CenturyLink and Comcast still must move their lines before the old pole can be removed. Aguayo was unsure when that work would be completed.
