Leaking Water Main Closes Roads in New Haven




    A leaking water main at the corner of Whalley Avenue and Amity Road in Westville, New Haven has closed the area to traffic as crews work to make repairs.

    According to a press release from the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority, the main was first installed in 1909. It began leaking Thursday afternoon.

    The water company says it's bringing in special equipment to help with repairs. They hope the work will be finished by Friday evening.

    In the meantime, traffic is being detoured to Amity, Bradley and Litchfield Turnpike. The intersection is closed in both directions, according to the release.

    All customers should currently have water, but some may notice discoloration, the release says. The Regional Water Authority expects to send out another update around 10 a.m. Friday.
