Water main break closes southbound Colorado Boulevard

DENVER — A water main break at Colorado Blvd. and Louisiana is flooding the roadway and causing a traffic headache.

The southbound road is closed near Mississippi Avenue as the asphalt buckled and water rushes down the boulevard.

Denver water tells FOX31 that the broken main is 12 inches in diameter and their Emergency Services Team is at the scene.

Over a dozen businesses along Colorado Boulevard and several residences have lost their water service.

Repairs are expected to be complete by midnight.
