Motorists in Danville: Water main-gate 2013 has hit my neighborhood.


This is Spruce Street in Danville as it has looked the last three days.

There was a water main break three days ago which left me without water for the night – but by morning the water was back on in my house. But the trucks and workers are still working, leaving the street completely blocked off.

Motorists be warned: they are completely detouring traffic around the lower half of the street, normally a pretty busy intersection.

I’m referring to this situation as Water main-gate because I feel like it has reached epic proportions – I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to park on Spruce Street again.

OK, maybe I’m being dramatic. But it’s very frustrating – and I continue to pray every time I reach for a faucet because I don’t want to go through that again.

There’s also huge puddles of water forming near the intersection of Ferry Street and Bloom Road – another huge intersection.

It’s not looking good.

I’ll keep you updated as to how it goes!
