Early Tuesday morning, a 24-inch cast iron water main on 4th & Burnside burst -- causing road and flood damage around the main.
Crews are working hard to repair 36 feet of the main and to repave the surrounding roads. Unfortunately, the earth under the street is too wet to complete street repairs right away. We hope to reopen all lanes of Burnside by Sunday.
Neighbors and businesses in the area have been great throughout this challenging water main break, and now is the perfect time to show them our support.
Join Commissioner Steve Novick and me for breakfast at Blue Collar Bakery on SW 3rd & Pine tomorrow morning, October 31, at 7:15am. Grab some coffee and a pastry, and help a small business. We hope to see you there!
