Water Main Break in Carmichael Creates Traffic Mess

SACRAMENTO COUNTY (CBS13) -- A water main break at the intersection of Fair Oaks Boulevard and Grant Avenue is causing significant traffic delays, according to county officials.

The Sacramento County Department of Transportation says work was being done as part of the Fair Oaks Boulevard Improvement Project when a water main was damaged by construction crews. Street flooding occurred after the break and crews are working to pump water out of the area.

As a result of the break the outside lane on Fair Oaks Boulevard heading north has been closed and will remain closed until at least 6 p.m.

County officials are encouraging drivers to avoid the area and use alternate routes if possible.
