    One lane of Route 44 West in Avon is closed because of a water main break.

    A water main break that affected several businesses on Route 44 and West Main Street in Avon earlier today has been repaired, and traffic is flowing normally, according to police.

    The break has impacted water service to several local businesses, including Russell Speeders Car Wash, Consignment Boutique and New England Pasta Company, business offices located at 302 West Main Street and shops located at 290 West Main Street, police said.

    The break happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday and Route 44 westbound was down to one lane of traffic while crews worked to make repairs. It has since been fixed and all lanes of travel have reopened.

    The eastbound side of the road was not affected.
