LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

City of Lubbock Pipeline Maintenance Crews are working to repair a ruptured water line at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 4th Street, just south of Parkway Drive. A private contractor struck the line Monday afternoon. Traffic is being detoured around the work area.

Work continued into the night on Monday. Northbound and southbound lanes of MLK are closed between 5th Street and Parkway Drive as of 7:15 p.m.

The water line rupture has not interrupted service for any customers at this time. Crews are working to isolate the leak and maintain service during the repair.

Drivers are asked to use caution if driving near the work zone and to seek alternate routes if possible.
