BOISE -- United Water crews are working to repair water main that began leaking at the intersection of 16th and Main streets in downtown Boise around 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The Ada County Highway District has closed the intersection to westbound traffic. Motorists are urged to avoid the area and are being detoured to Grove Street. The eastbound lane is restricted.
No word yet what caused the 12-inch water main to leak, but the leak has been contained. Repair work is underway.
ACHD says once the repairs are complete one of their crews will repair the asphalt. The intersection is expected to reopen as early as Wednesday.
