UPDATE: River Road near the Highway 2 bridge will remain closed for at least the next 24 hours, as of 4:40 p.m. Tuesday. It is closed to traffic from Wet Willy’s Wand Wash to Fountain Tire.
The Town of Peace River is dealing with its second water main break in less than a week. The main was ruptured by work on the new Peace River bridge, and water in the area has been rerouted through another line.
No water disruptions are expected for residents in the north end of town, but traffic is affected. Drivers are asked to avoid River Road/94 Street near the Highway 2 bridge. They should use 98 Street instead.
There’s no estimate for repairs. Town staff are already fixing a water main valve on Main Street that froze and leaked water Friday.
