A City of Lubbock Water Utilities work crew was at the scene of a 12-inch water main break at 64th Street and South University Avenue Wednesday evening.
Southbound lanes on University are temporarily closed from 62nd Street through 66th Street. Two northbound lanes are closed from 66th Street to 63rd Street. Work will continue throughout the night. Workers hope to have one southbound lane open by 6 a.m. Thursday.
At this time, there are no known water outages. Anyone who is experiencing a loss of water should call (806) 775-2588 and report the situation.
Also, Water Utilities crews will be installing a fire line tap in 82nd Street, west of Waco Avenue. Westbound traffic will be channeled to one lane and Eastbound traffic is unaffected. Construction will start Wednesday morning and should be completed by Thursday afternoon.
