YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Repairs to a broken waterline that shut down a portion of South Avenue Monday are done, but now a road crew has to pave over the work area.

The break happened early Monday and involved a 12-inch pipe.

Deputy Director of Public Works Charles Shasho said that South Avenue between Lucius and Auburndale avenues will be closed for at least another couple of days.

The detour for northbound drivers is Midlothian Boulevard to Market Street to Indianola Avenue. Southbound drives should take Indianola Avenue to Market Street and then to Midlothian Boulevard.

Local access to schools, businesses and homes will be maintained.

All truck traffic must follow the detour.
