LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Tuesday morning commute could be impacted along a stretch of Leestown Road in Lexington following a water main break on Monday, according to Kentucky American Water.
The company says an 8-inch diameter water main in the 1500 block of Leestown Road near Lisle Industrial Avenue broke, impacting inbound traffic.
Traffic has been diverted to the middle lane as crews continue to make repairs. The company asks motorists to avoid the area and use a different route if possible. Kentucky American says crews may still be making repairs during the morning rush hour.
Motorists traveling through the affected area are asked to slow down, use extra caution to keep themselves, other drivers and the repair crew safe.
The company says approximately 30 customers’ water service has been impacted by the break.
