A section of Route 108 (Durham Road) in Dover is closed because of fallen tree that took power lines down with it.

The City of Dover said traffic is being detoured via the High School and Middle School Access roads.

Power is also out along Durham Road including the traffic lights at Exit 7 and Mill Street. Eversource's outage map shows 800 customers without power and an estimated restoration time of 7 p.m.

The live power lines have also seared the pavement. The city didn't disclose what brought down the lines.

The Dover High School Marching Band Show will continue as scheduled.
