Sewer main break closes stretch of West Bridge Street


West Bridge Street between Water Street and West River Road North has been closed until further notice.

Safety Service Director Mary Siwierka said there is a sewer main break either beneath the bridge that spans the Black River or beside it. The bridge has been closed to all traffic as a result.

A timetable for when the road will reopen has not been announced.

“At this point, I don’t know when,” Siwierka said. “We are going to at least need a couple of days to assess it. We will probably have a better idea around Friday of what the long-term fix it will be.”

Siwierka said the road was closed more for precautionary measures to keep people from driving over the bridge.

City officials have notified all safety responders of the closure.
