Water Main Break Causes Shutdown of Busy Shreveport Thouroughfare
A 12-inch water main that runs along Hollywood Avenue broke early this morning, forcing the closure of the area from Linwood to Bernstein. City Water Department crews are working to repair the damage now, and estimate it could take until 3 this afternoon to complete. About 10 residences and one business will be without water until the repairs are made. The westbound concrete road panels will have to be replaced, which will take a few days. The eastbound lanes should reopen later this afternoon or early this evening.
