That section of roadway was closed to traffic for much of the day. Drivers were forced to take a short detour until the repairs were completed. The water line break was reported about 3:30 Wednesday morning. While water service to a few customers was cut, the bigger problem was the amount of work needed to repair the broken water line and the roadway.
The section of Union Avenue closed by the water main break was opened back up to traffic at 2 in the afternoon..
