Road reopens after water main break in Hoover

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — UPDATE 4PM: The road is now open.

UPDATE 1:30PM: Hoover police tell us the bridge is still closed.

Lt. Czeskleba says the bridge will be closed until repairs are completed by Birmingham Water Works. He thinks they’ve shut the water off, but repairs are still underway.

They will sand the area if ice is still present after repairs are finished.

ORIGINAL: There is a water main break at the Cahaba River bridge on Lorna Road near Old Montgomery Highway. Parts of Lorna Road are blocked off.

There is water spraying onto the bridge, which is causing icy conditions. The bridge will be closed until it is safe to travel.

We have a crew on the scene, so we will update you as we receive more information.
