MORGANTOWN — Those fallen tree branches currently snarling the lines of a utility pole near Willey Street are generating a mystery.

The utility is near the Town Hill Tavern, on Willey Street, and passers-by were worried that said branches could bring a bunch of lines down.

A FirstEnergy spokesman said he knows the lines aren’t carrying electricity.

Frontier Communications and Comcast, meanwhile, are sending crews to investigate whether the pole is carrying telephone or TV cable lines.

Terry Hough, Morgantown’s city engineer, said the city can’t clear the lines because it’s a liability issue.

“It’s up to the overseeing entity,” she said.
