DENVER (CBS4) – A water main break Wednesday morning has one block of a Denver neighborhood closed.
It happened before 6 a.m. in the 1700 block of East Cornell Avenue. Denver Water was on scene, pulling up the road and digging through the ground to reach the broken 12-inch wide pipe.
The pipe is being cut and a roughly 10-foot section will be removed. It will be replaced with a new pipe and homes in the area should be able to get water within two to three hours.
Road repairs are expected to take longer.
