Water main break closes S. Grand between Chippewa, Winnebago

ST. LOUIS, Mo. _A water main break in south St. Louis caused traffic detours Thursday morning (Oct. 27).

Part of South Grand Boulevard was closed between Chippewa and Winnebago streets while crews worked to fix the water main break at South Grand and Phillips Place. The MetroBus 70 Grand route was also being detoured.

St. Louis City Water crews brought out the jackhammers and began repairs around 1:30 a.m. after the water main break caused part of the pavement to buckle and water to shoot out from the roadway.

South Grand reopened with restrictions around 6:50 a.m. Northbound traffic is getting by in the center lane. Southbound traffic is passing in the far right lane.
