Water main break causes lane closures on North Miami Avenue

(MIAMI, January 29, 2015) - A Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) crew is repairing an eight-inch water line that broke on North Miami Avenue. To accommodate the repairs, two southbound lanes have been closed between Northwest 78-79th Streets. Commuters may want to avoid the area during the construction. Repairs are expected to be completed within six hours and should not affect water service to the area.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services and programs, visit
