Traffic Alert: Water Main Breaks Close Lanes in Downtown Fort Worth as Repairs Continue

East Weatherford Street is now open, but Main and 6th Streets continue to have lanes closed

Following two water main breaks in downtown Fort Worth, street repairs at one completed, but at the other, repairs are expected to continue to impact traffic, according to the city's water department.

Traffic in the 300 block of East Weatherford Street in downtown Fort Worth was reduced to one lane Friday after a 6-inch water main break, the city of Fort Worth said Friday afternoon. A city contractor completed repairs Monday afternoon.

On Saturday morning, a 10-inch water line broke in the 700 block of Main Street near the intersection with Sixth Street.

The main was back in service Saturday night. One lane of traffic is open in both directions through the 700 block of Main Street, but traffic is reduced on Sixth Street to the far two right lanes.

A city contractor began re-laying bricks on Main Street starting Monday morning.

As of Monday afternoon, the repairs are still ongoing, the water department said, due to the specialty brick work required.
