A large tree fell onto Coldwater Canyon Drive, blocking a route between the San Fernando Valley and Beverly Hills during the Tuesday morning drive.

The tree took down a powerline when it toppled at about 1 a.m. in the Beverly Crest area. Crews blocked off the section of road overnight to begin removing the tree about a half-mile south of Mulholland Drive.

The road reopened later Tuesday morning.

No injuries were reported.

Several hillsides above and below Mulholland Drive crumbled during last week’s days-long and record-setting rainstorm. Mulholland Drive remains closed in the area.
