City Works to Fix Large Downtown Water Main Break

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- Traffic is moving slowly around the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery at this hour because of a water main break.

Officials with Montgomery Water Works say they received a call about the 12 inch water main breaking just before 7:00 Friday morning.

The break happened at the corner of Bibb and Lee Streets, and crews are re-routing traffic to the hotel's parking deck.

Buddy Morgan of the MWW says the city repaved all the streets when the Renaissance Hotel was built but adds, "It's always the good new asphault that we wind up having to tear up."

Officials say they hope to have the repairs finished by about 8:00 Friday night.
