Water main break in downtown Greenville

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Crews are responding to a water main break in downtown Greenville.

It’s at the intersection of Academy Street and McBee Street.

Greenville Water says police are detouring traffic because of ice.

One lane of soundbound traffic is closed on Academy Street between West Washington and West McBee Avenue.

Crews hope to make the repairs quickly and completely reopen the road.

Wednesday’s water main break is not far from another break crews repaired overnight.

With freezing temperatures this week, Greer CPW also reported three water main breaks on Tuesday. A spokesperson said the breaks were caused by cold weather. A boil water advisory issue is in effect for some Greer residents after those repairs were made.
