Water main break restricts Broadway/Hilyard intersection

August 16, 2019

A broken water main at the intersection of East Broadway and Hilyard Street will severely restrict traffic movements at the intersection,  so drivers should avoid the area and seek alternate routes.

EWEB crews are in the process of repairing the break, but the work continue through Friday evening.

Northbound Hilyard approaching the intersection is reduced to one lane north of East 11th Avenue. Vehicles will be allowed to proceed northbound across the intersection, or eastbound on Broadway only. No westbound traffic movements from northbound Hilyard are permitted.  

Southbound Hilyard is closed at East Eighth Avenue, and only business access is permitted.  

Eastbound Broadway is restricted, with only eastbound traffic movements permitted.  

Westbound Broadway is also restricted at the intersection, with vehicles only permitted to turn onto northbound Hilyard.  

The break to the 20-inch cast iron water main occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m.  Crews hope to complete work by 8 p.m. Friday.
