During the weekend's windstorm, a tree came down on Dayton Ave N, between Richmond Beach Rd and N 183rd.

The tree brought down a "guy pole." 

That’s one that supports other poles, but doesn’t carry any lines, so the mishap did not cause any power outages.

City Light had a line service crew onsite, but the pole was too big for them to move.

The pole crews were concentrating on replacing broken poles that did carry power lines to get customers back into service. 

The guy pole was removed and replaced on Tuesday.

The road was closed to traffic and Metro buses were rerouted onto Fremont.
