DENVER — A water main break closed both directions of Sheridan Boulevard on Monday.

The pipe was fixed and water restored by midafternoon, Denver Water said.

Workers repaved Sheridan Boulevard and the road reopened late Monday night.

There were 21 homes without water along Sheridan Boulevard. The cause of the break is under investigation.
