Two water main breaks caused water service to be shut off to about eight businesses just off 78th and Dodge Streets on Monday evening and closed traffic on Beverly Drive, a spokeswoman for Metropolitan Utilities District said.
The breaks, both to 6-inch mains near Beverly and Farnam Drives, were reported at 4:04 p.m., spokeswoman Tracey Christensen said.
Water service to the businesses was shut off about 6:30 p.m., she said, and service was expected to be restored by midnight.
Beverly Drive, from Dodge Street to Farnam Drive, was closed while MUD crews made repairs. Some lane restrictions are possible until road crews patch up the street.
