Part of West 15th to be closed into next week for water line repair

Some traffic constrictions are taking place in and around Emporia on Wednesday.
Emporia's Engineering Department has closed West 15th from Graphic Arts about half a block to the east. Crews will be repairing a 16-inch water line that goes from near 15th and Hatcher under Interstate 35 to Flint Hills Technical College. The city could have that stretch of 15th closed into next week.
Separately, the Kansas Turnpike Authority has closed the southbound outside lane at mile marker 120 for maintenance. This is near the site of Tuesday's fatal crash involving a semi driver from Texas.
