A single vehicle collision caused damage to a telegraph pole on the A35 today (Sunday).
The stretch between Monkeys Jump and Winterborne Abbas was closed for several hours with diversions in place.
Highways England and Dorset police were at the scene to ensure closures were in place and assist those needing to access nearby properties.
Contractors and police needed to ensure the road remained closed until the arrival of BT to make the scene safe and enable works to be carried out.
The road and since been re-opened.
