Water main on 11th Street to close road until Monday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The roadway on 11th Street between East Broad and East Marshall will be closed until Monday afternoon as the Department of Public Utilities waits for an asphalt delivery to finish the repair of the water main break.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m. Thursday, a water main broke on 11th Street near the intersection of Broad Street at VCU Medical Center in downtown Richmond. The hospital did not lose water, according to a VCU spokesperson.

The DPU said the when the water main broke it damaged a nearby sewer.

A tractor trailer hit a fire hydrant this morning, but the hydrant didn't have water due to the break. The roadway has completely crumbled.
