Water main break closes portion of Pine

By Jessica Johnston, Assistant News Director

A water main break at the intersection of Pine Street, Muskingum Avenue and W. Muskingum Avenue closed a portion of the southbound lane of Pine Street Wednesday. Continued work will affect traffic on Thursday, as well.

The southbound lane of Pine Street was closed from W. Main Street past the three-way intersection.

The Zanesville City Water Department arrived on the scene just before 12:30 p.m. and began excavating the broken pipe.

On Thursday, July 11, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. crews will perform an emergency valve replacement to repair the line.

During that time, the southbound lane of Pine Street from Vine Street to W. Main Street will be closed. Additionally, Muskingum Avenue from Pine Street to Luck Avenue will also be closed.

Water will be shut off to the surrounding residences from Lorain Street to W. Main Street during the 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. repairs.

Drivers are encouraged to use caution when traveling through the work zone, or to take an alternate route.
