Water main break shuts down portions of Central in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Crews from the City of Wichita worked to fix a water main break along a busy city street on Thursday.

The break was along Central Avenue between I-135 and Hillside Ave. Water services for homes and businesses between I-135 and Hillside and 3rd Street and Elm Street were affected.

Some traffic was diverted to the turn lanes due to high water over the road.
