Crews repair water main break in Midway area

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A water main break in the Midway District Sunday left six businesses without water and prompted officials to close the eastbound lanes of Midway Drive, according to the city's Public Utility Department.

An 18-inch cast iron pipe ruptured in the 2500 block of Midway Drive near Barnett Avenue shortly before 6 a.m. and crews were called to make repairs, Arian Collins, Supervising Public Information Officer for the city's Public Utility Department said.

Collins said eastbound Midway Drive was closed to through traffic as work continued.

Water service was expected to be restored to the six business customers about 2 a.m. Monday, Collins said.

Sunday's break was near the location where a deteriorated 16-inch cast iron water main broke Saturday morning on Sports Arena Boulevard beneath the Interstate 8 overpass, which led to the closure of a key route from the Midway area into Mission Bay Park.

No one lost service because of that earlier break, Collins said.
