Water main break in downtown Springfield leads to traffic detours

Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- A 12″ water main break near the intersection of Jefferson and McDaniel is causing some traffic detours Wednesday morning.

According to Joel Alexander with City Utilities, the break happened due to older cast iron material.

Alexander says customers in the area will experience low water pressure for a few hours while repairs are being made.

A recommended detour for that area will be to take Olive Street or avoid the area in general.
