Meridian – Crews are working now to dig out the broken, 12-inch line but the excavation, repair and repaving is expected to last through the Friday morning commute. Regular Franklin Road drivers are advised to find an alternative route for this evening and the following morning if possible.
Franklin Road down to one lane in each direction due to water main break
The actual break is near Adkins Way, just west of the Franklin/Locust Grove intersection and occurred late Thursday morning, blocking the westbound lanes. Motorists will find one lane of traffic in each direction but should expect major delays.
The City of Meridian’s Water Division is leading the repairs.
