Block of Topeka main street closed due to water main break


A main street in Topeka remains closed because of two water main breaks.

The street was shut down around 5:00 p.m Saturday afternoon from 21st and Buchanan to 21st and Clay because of the break. 

A second break happened 30 minutes later in the same area in the 2000 block of SW High Ave.

Crews say while the break at 21st and Buchanan has since been repaired, the street is expected to be closed through Monday as they continue evaluating the road to make sure it’s safe to drive on.
