Water main break creates traffic problems in Saint Albans

Posted: Updated:

A water main broke in Saint Albans on Wednesday evening, shutting down at least one lane of traffic for a while.

It happened just after 6 p.m. on Pennsylvania Avenue between Snow Lane and Drumheller Drive.

According to Kanawha County emergency responders, one lane of Pennsylvania Avenue was closed while water crews worked on the six-inch line.

The city has $2 million it's going to use to replace several water lines in Saint Albans according to the mayor.

Most of the water lines are more than 90 years old.
