Crews from the Portland Water Bureau responded to a water main break that has closed SW 1st Avenue between SW Jefferson and SW Columbia Streets. The main break has caused the street to buckle and traffic is being diverted away from the area. 

Water service has not been affected. Portland Water Bureau is working to repair the main break within the next 24 hours.

For additional information, please contact the Portland Water Bureau's Public Information Officer at 503-823-8064.
