Water main break in St. Louis closes several lanes of Hampton Avenue

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Several lanes were closed on Hampton Avenue after a water main broke in southwest St. Louis Tuesday morning.

Officials said all but one lane on Hampton Avenue was closed in each direction from Fyler Avenue to Arthur Avenue as crews worked to fix a leak on a 36-inch steel main.

Authorities said crews are working quickly, but lanes would probably still be reduced for Tuesday’s evening commute.

The city said water service to nearby businesses and residents has not been affected.
