UPDATE 4:20 p.m.: Officials in Danville have reopened North Main Street after crews have been working to repair damage sustained to a water line; however, only one lane in each direction has been reopened.

Drivers can expect this pattern to continue as a contract crew will work to repair and repave the section of the street that was damaged by Thursday’s water main break. These lane restrictions will likely be lifted toward the end of next week when the work is complete.


DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — On Friday morning, Danville officials announced the continued closure of a section of North Main Street following Thursday afternoon’s water main break.

According to city officials, the water main break was reported late in the afternoon on Thursday, Aug. 6, leading to the closure of North Main Street at Fagan Street.

Even though water service has reportedly been restored to customers in the area, anyone who does experience muddy water coming out of their faucets is advised to run the water until it comes out clear.

As of 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 7, North Main Street is still closed in both directions at the Fagan Street area while utility workers finish making repairs and other crews clean up the street, according to the City of Danville.

However, officials say they hope to open one lane in each direction later in the day on Friday.
