Knoxville — Hawkeye Paving, working on Knoxville's downtown streetscape project, accidentally cut a Windstream telephone and information service line to the Marion County Courthouse earlier today (Thursday). The courthouse offices are without phone, Internet and e-mail communications. 

Windstream was quick to respond and is working to correct the problem. Courthouse offices remain open for business. 

The goal is to have the problem corrected by the end of the day. If not, lines should be repaired on Friday.
