WPCNR MAIN STREET JOURNAL. FROM THE MAYOR’S OFFICE. AUGUST 7, 2015, 5:45 P.M.:
There is a water main break on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. between Quarropas St. and Martine Ave. The Mayor’s Office has confirmed with a posting on their website.
City Hall says City crews have isolated the break and stopped the water. Residents who experienced a loss of water or low water pressure should see an improvement shortly.
Several roads are now closed as a result of the break: Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd is closed between Quarropas St. and Martine Ave. and Martine Ave. is closed between Mamaroneck Ave. and Bank St. These road closures will remain in effect while City crews work on the problem. Updates will be provided as needed.
