Drivers are encouraged to avoid 82nd St. and Slide Road on Thursday evening after a water main break has reduced traffic lanes in the area.
Currently, eastbound traffic on 82nd St. as it approaches Slide is reduced to one through lane with the northbound turn lane open as well. Southbound traffic on Slide as it approaches 82nd St. is reduced to two through lanes with drivers able to turn both east- and westbound onto 82nd St.
Pipeline maintenance crews are working to locate the leak and will begin the repair process as soon as that happens. It is not known at this time what caused the leak.
