Water Main Break Halts Traffic

By Elise Preston

AMARILLO, TX - A water main break is to blame for shutting down part of a road in South Amarillo, Monday.

City crews were called out to fix a busted 12 inch water line near the 1100 block of West 34th Avenue. Nearly 40 homes were without water for much of the day. Workers fixed the break Monday afternoon. However, road crews will now have to repair the street after workers broke ground to get to the water line. 

Drivers headed east on 34th Avenue are being diverted to I-27. West bound traffic has been cut down to one lane. The city hopes to have the repairs done within a few days.
