Earlier today a sewer line broke in the area of Lonesome Dove and East Dove Road. Crews are on the scene now and will work through the night to make the necessary repairs.
Starting at 7:00 tonight, Lonesome Dove between East Dove Road and Foxfire Lane will be closed. The closure is necessary because the sewer line is well beneath the road’s surface and large equipment is required to complete the work.
The detour route for drivers is from North Carroll Avenue to Burney Lane.
Some residents in the area may notice a strong smell. The Public Works Department would like to emphasize that drinking water is in no way affected by this break and the water from your tap and other home plumbing is safe to drink. Once the line is repaired the smell will dissipate. Public Works will be looking into the cause of the break.
We apologize for any inconvenience this incident may cause.
