Water main break causes road closures on Lincoln & First Ave.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Parts of Lincoln Avenue are closed following a water main break on Thursday evening.

According to Evansville Water Sewer Utility, the roadway is closed to all eastbound and westbound traffic between St. Mary’s Drive and Trinity Drive.

Authorities say the break happened near Evansville State Hospital.

EWSU officials urge drivers to stay away from the area.

Also, a section of Fist Avenue is shut down Friday morning so crews can repair another water main break there.

Evansville Water officials say this break isn’t far from the one they had earlier this week on First Avenue.
