Water main break shuts down ABQ dealership

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A local car dealer just revved his business back up only to be shut down again.

The owner of Unique Motor Sports on Lomas near San Mateo has had quite a few rounds of bad luck.

Just before Christmas a water main break shutdown the car lot after it turned into a muddy mess.

Now it’s happened again.

“A couple of months ago the city had a water main break out on the road in front of our entrance and they had us close down for over 30 days and here we are almost 90 days later and it’s happening again,” said Mike Heffron of Unique Motor Sports.

The water authority isn’t sure how long the repair will take until they can see what’s broken.

Until then, Heffron’s hands are tied.

There’s only one entrance into his business and he says it’s affecting his bottom line.
