Lincoln Water System officials report that South 40th Street is now open to through traffic from both directions. The roadway was closed earlier Thursday from Van Dorn Street to Normal Boulevard due to a water main break. All water service in the area has been restored.
The stretch of repaired roadway will be closed again for two to three hours following the morning commute at 8:30 Friday so final repairs can be made. At that time, motorists should use 33rd Street and 48th Street as an alternate route.
