A water main break narrowed Fifth Avenue to one open lane each direction at 30th Street in Rock Island, Illinois.

The break was reported Monday morning, March 25, 2013.  In an update issued the next day, city officials said repairs were continuing there and that one lane would be open for each direction of travel for through traffic on 5th Avenue, but the two westbound lanes would remain closed.  The work was expected to continue until Friday, March 29.

In addition to the 5th Avenue work, Crews will close 30th Street to all traffic between 5th and 7th avenues from Wednesday, March 27 until Friday, March 29.

Signs will be placed to mark a detour for traffic.
