Water main break fixed on West Sixth at Elm, but traffic still constricted Chuck Samples/KVOE News

Initial repairs are done after a water main break in Emporia on Wednesday.


Public Works Director Dean Grant says a 12-inch line developed a hole in the middle of West Sixth at the Elm Street intersection Wednesday afternoon.

The area is part of a construction zone as the city replaces the water line along Elm from Sixth north to Newman Regional Health. Grant says the affected line was old and not set for replacement just yet.

Eastbound and westbound traffic is constricted to one lane around the work zone until further notice.
