Water main break closes part of Central


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A water main break has closed Central between University and Yale.

According to the Water Authority, the break was probably caused by the age of the line. Central is expected to remain closed for the rest of the evening as crews work to fix the line.

The Water Authority hopes two lanes will be open in time for the morning commute but is advising people to avoid the area if possible.

At this time the water at the leak location has been shut off to minimize damage.
