A break in a 12” water main has led to the closure of the westbound lanes of Escalante Road between Prudence and Kolb roads.

This includes the left turn lane to southbound Kolb Road, city officials said in a news release Thursday afternoon. Westbound traffic is being diverted to an eastbound lane in the affected area.

The hole will be covered with backfill material and plating. Tucson Water and contractor crews will work on repairs as soon as they can, the news release said.

Motorists in the area are asked to exercise additional caution in the area and be prepared for traffic delays.
