Water Main Cancels Lunch

The lunch rush was a wash out for several Tyler restaurants on Wednesday.

Water was cut off between Robert E Lee Drive and Thigpen on South Broadway around noon. The culprit was a water main.  It ruptured underground early Wednesday morning.

The break created a ten foot diameter sinkhole, washing out a driveway and a small brick wall. No one was injured, and water was restored late this afternoon.
