Broken water main prompts lane closures in Escondido
ESCONDIDO, Calif. — A water main break in Escondido Tuesday prompted authorities to closed lanes on Valley Parkway in both directions, police said.
The break in the vicinity of Valley Parkway and Hidden Trails Road was reported around 5:15 a.m., according to Escondido police and the California Highway Patrol.
One lane on Valley Parkway remained open in each direction following the water main break, police said. A SigAlert was issued.
Repairs to the area require extensive excavation, so motorists were advised to avoid the area if possible through the evening, particularly during the afternoon rush hour, city officials said.
