Water Main Repaired In Southfield

SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – Water has been restored to businesses near Evergreen and the southbound Lodge Freeway after an early morning water main break.

Crews worked for hours on the 8-inch pipe burst — that at one point flooded the roadway. Only one lane of traffic is open, however, as crews had to dig up the area to make the appropriate repairs. The pavement should be fully repaired by late this afternoon.

A lot of heavy machinery was on the southbound Lodge service drive at Ten Mile and Evergreen where crews were working on the water main break.
