LAKE AVENUE CLOSED: All day Tuesday, and perhaps Wednesday (today), Lake Avenue was closed from 11th to 20th Street so the city crew could fix an eight-inch water main that broke Monday night, according to city services director Shane Gruber.
Lake Avenue traffic between those streets was re-routed to Avenues D and F. Gruber hoped the break would be fixed by Wednesday. He speculated that the age of the pipe and heavy truck traffic on Lake Avenue contributed to the break. Residents along Lake Avenue in the closed area might experience low water pressure on Wednesday, he said, noting that water service to those homes was not interrupted.
