PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A water main break has forced the closure of part of Smallman Street in the Strip District.
Crews at the scene say repairs will begin this afternoon to the 6-inch broken main. It burst around 1:45 p.m.
The water has been shut off and there’s no visible damage, but crews will have to dig up the line to repair it.
Smallman Street is closed between 14th and 15th Streets.
Officials hope to reopen the road by Friday.
UPDATE: Work will continue on the 6-inch water main into Friday, 8/9. The street will remain closed to traffic. https://t.co/zEDls9vWeq
