A 16-inch water main line break on Jefferson Street between Linden and Pine streets has led to traffic detours in the downtown area. Truck routes are affected.
The detour starts at Jefferson Street and Lincoln Avenue and goes east to Lemay Avenue, north to Vine Street and west to College Avenue. One lane of Jefferson Street is open for eastbound traffic. It is estimated the road closures will remain in place through late afternoon.
Electronic message boards are in place on Riverside Avenue to alert traffic in the area, as well as on Mulberry Street to notify trucks to take Timberline Road or Lemay Avenue to Vine Street in order to avoid the detours.
