City crews are repairing a broken water valve near the intersection of 7th Street and Central Ave. Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Roadwork is expected to disrupt local traffic until this afternoon, crews said.
Crews expect to have the valve replaced and the road re-paved by the end of the day.
The valve has been leaking water onto Central Ave’s westbound lane for almost a week.
Fixing the valve now allowed the city to re-pave the road in asphalt rather than a temporary “cold mix” patch.
The defective valve was approximately 50 years old when it failed last week, crews explained.
