Water Main Break Forces Road, Bridge Closures

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids police confirm to KCRG-TV9 that a water main break is causing road closures Thursday morning. The break occurred near the intersection of 1st Street and Diagonal Drive SW.

As of 6:50 a.m. the water had been turned off and had receded enough to allow limited access to the area. Although it had been previously closed, the entire 8th Avenue Bridge is reopen to traffic.

The majority of the intersection of Diagonal Drive SW and 1st Street SW remains closed to traffic. This closure is impacting westbound traffic between 1st and 2nd Street SW. Any drivers who would normally travel in this area are asked to find an alternate route.

The closure is expected to last several hours.
