PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Roger Williams Park Zoo has had power restored after a construction accident cut the power and forced the zoo to close on Monday.

Director Jeremy Goodman says a contractor hit a power line, which caused the zoo to lose all power.

The zoo says all of the workers and animals are safe and power was fully restored as of 3:30 pm. They expect to re-open as usual Tuesday.
