Water Main Repairs Close Lane on Cumberland Avenue
A KUB crew continues to work at the site of a water main break that occurred early Tuesday morning in the eastbound curbside lane of Cumberland Avenue between Seventeenth Street and Nineteenth Street.
The eastbound curbside lane is expected to remain closed through the evening commute in the immediate area on this section of Cumberland Avenue. One eastbound and both westbound lanes will remain open during this period.
Barring further problems during the repair process, KUB anticipates having water service restored by early afternoon on Tuesday. Once the water main has been repaired and service restored, KUB will begin working to repair roadway damages in the area.
Flagmen will be onsite to assist with maintaining access to businesses along this section of Cumberland Avenue during this period. On-site signage and barricades will remain in place for the duration of this work. Motorists are advised to use caution and expect possible delays when traveling in this area.
Follow-up advisories will be issued by KUB as needed.
