Springfield’s City Utilities announced Sunday night that the intersection of National and Bennett will be closed for “the next day or two” because of an eight inch water main break.
While water service has been restored to customers, the break is requiring pavement repairs that will force the closure of the intersection.
Barricades are in place and detour signs have been posted. Drivers are urged to avoid the area.
The detours provided are:
- Southbound traffic for National should detour to Grand and Kimbrough then travel south on Kimbrough.
- Northbound traffic will detour at Portland and travel to Fremont.
