Water main break in Independence will cause delays throughout the week

INDEPENDENCE, OH (WOIO) - Two to three northbound lanes of Brecksville Rd. will be closed just south of the Rockside Rd. intersection beginning Monday and continuing for the rest of the week following a water main break.

Cleveland Water Department crews are on site to locate and repair a leak on an existing water main.

Significant congestion and traffic delays can be expected during the morning and mid-day rush hours.

Drivers should seek alternate routes to avoid the work area via E. Pleasant Valley Rd. and/or Chestnut Rd.

Southbound Brecksville Rd. traffic should remain unaffected.
