Water main break causes lane closures on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY — Southbound traffic on Redwood Road has been reduced to one lane at 758 South in Salt Lake City due to a water main break.

Salt Lake City Public Utilities first tweeted about the break at 8:21 a.m., and shortly after noon they stated that crews are on scene and pumping water from a flooded property while other personnel are repairing the line.

The agency states 20 customers are without water service, which is expected to be restored by 2 p.m. Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Salt Lake City Public Utilities said the pipe in question was installed in 1948, and they suspect the age of the pipe was a factor in the break.

SLC Public Utilities states that cleaning up and restoring the road may take three or four days.
