Kentwood water main break to close 50th Street Wednesday

KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) —  A section of 50th Street in Kentwood will  close Wednesday afternoon as city crews work to fix a broken water main.

In a post on Facebook,  the city of Kentwood says crews will begin repairs to the line under  50th Street and Blaine Avenue at 1 p.m. Wednesday. Drivers are  encouraged to take an alternate route and avoid the area while work is  underway.

The city says homes and businesses in the area may be without water until the line is fixed.

It’s  unclear what caused the pipe to break. However, numerous water main  breaks have been reported in West Michigan since temperatures began  tumbling when arctic air moved in.
