Motorists who use Klein Road in Gulfport will want to take alternate route.

Gulfport police Sgt. Josh Bromen said the are of Klein Road from Harmony Road to Three Rivers Road will be closed Friday afternoon for 5 or 6 hours.

Bromen said a garbage truck caught a wire and caused a pole to break. Power is also out in the immediate area.

“Coast Electric is going to have to removed the pole, dig a hole and replace the pole, so it’s going to be a while before it power is restored and the road is open,” he said.

Bromen said no one was injured in the accident.
