COLUMBUS: Officials say repairing a major water main break that spilled water across downtown Columbus streets will take most of the afternoon.
Frigid temperatures slowed work on the break that caused some streets and nearby buildings to be closed Tuesday.
Public utilities department spokeswoman Laura Young Mohr said water service is expected to be restored by 5 p.m. Tuesday but that people should boil their water as a precaution.
The rupture was reported Monday in a pipe beneath the road, several blocks from the Statehouse. Mohr says the cause isn’t clear, and officials don’t know whether the cold weather was a factor.
The break has raised concerns about water freezing on the roads. Mohr says her department is working with public safety officials to address any ice that might form.
