I’ve gotten a report that Carson Street is closed this morning due to a water line break. The break is at the Hwy 50 (William Street) intersection, and all traffic is being detoured. The closest detours are to go west to Curry, Nevada, and Division Streets, or east to Roop. Here’s the report:
The main road through Nevada’s capitol city was closed at approximately 10:50 a.m., due to a water main break, according to initial public safety reports.
Carson Street at Williams is closed, and no word on when it will reopen, say Nevada Department of Transportation officials.
The break is reportedly in front of Heidi’s Family Restaurant.
Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen says motorists should to avoid the area and use an alternate route.
