Broken water main causing lane restrictions on Hampshire Road

By Kody Klein

A water main broke Monday afternoon on Hampshire Road at the intersection of Towner Boulevard, according to Lisa Wondrash, a spokesperson for the city.

Wondrash said the city is encouraging commuters to use alternate routes, since lanes will be restricted while city crews work on repairs.

No homes or businesses are without water, but Wondrash said certain streets may be affected later this evening, including: Chesterfield, Hampshire, Radcliff, Cranbrook, Towner, Cumberland, Beacon Hill, and Canterbury.

The city does not have an estimated time the repairs will be complete.

This is the 2nd water main break on Hampshire Road in 1 year. Last year (February?) there was a break near Chesterfield.

"No homes or businesses are without water...." The neighborhood was without water for a few hours. It was running again shortly after 6 p.m. I'm not complaining. The crew who repaired the break worked fast to get things squared away. Thanks for your hard work.
