A water line break forced the closure of Kirkwood Boulevard in both directions at Farnam Street in Davenport, Iowa.

A spokesperson for Iowa American Water said a contractor struck a water line, and that water service to one customer was impacted.

Davenport city officials said the street was closed Tuesday morning, July 9, 2013.

The detour for traffic is LeClaire Street, 14th and 15th Streets and Grand Avenue to get around the closure.

The closed road is part of the Bix at 6 training route.  Bix at 6 training runs are held weekly on Thursday evenings, and the next one is planned for Thursday, July 11, 2013.

City officials expected to reopen Kirkwood Boulevard in time for the Bix and 6 on July 11.
