Section of Vann Ave. back open after water main break

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Both southbound lanes on Vann Avenue just south of the Lloyd Expressway were closed for several hours due to a water main break.

Evansville Water and Sewer officials originally said traffic would not be able to turn south from the Expressway on Vann until the leak is repaired.

EWSU officials now say crews have found the leak and are replacing the pipe. Once the work is completed in the area, it will be filled with rock and the outside southbound lane on Vann will remain closed until the road surface can be restored.

They say due to safety concerns, both southbound lanes on Vann Avenue will remain closed until the road surface has been restored.
