Water main break closes portion Priest Drive in Tempe

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — One of Tempe's busiest streets is partially closed in one area because of a water main break Tuesday.

City officials say Priest Drive is restricted to one lane northbound and one lane southbound between 14th Street and University Drive and will remain that way at least through Wednesday morning's rush hour.

Tempe Water Department and Streets staff were on the scene yesterday with police. An assessment is being conducted to determine the extent of the damage.

It's unclear when the water main can be repaired.
