CENTERVILLE -- A 50-year-old irrigation water pipe break is expected to shut down the intersection at Main Street and Parrish Lane for the next two days, police said.
The water pipe broke at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, said Police Lt. Paul Child.
Deuel Creek Irrigation Company has to replace three valves, and the water break also caused a 6-foot-deep sinkhole in the middle of the road, Child said.
Commuters who travel in the area can expect to be diverted and are advised to plan on extra time for their travels.
There will be no westbound traffic permitted on Parrish Lane from 100 East to just below Main, Child said. Northbound left-hand turns and southbound right-hand turns from Main Street onto Parrish Lane will not be permitted.
Southbound traffic on Main Street will also be restricted.
Secondary water will be shut off to customers in the vicinity of Chase Lane to Porter Lane and from 100 East to 400 West while repairs are being done, he said.
Many Centerville commuters use Parrish Lane to get on and off Interstate 15.
"These are very busy roads," Child said.
Child said commuters can use 400 West and 400 East to avoid the construction repair work.
