UPDATE: As of 3:20 p.m. today, Pajarito Road remains closed. DPU crews are still making repairs to the water main. Officials anticipate that the road will be open after 7 p.m. to through traffic.
A concrete cylinder water main broke early this morning on Pajarito Road just west of the intersection of Diamond Drive on the Los Alamos National Laboratory side.
Pajarito Road is closed to through traffic at this intersection as Department of Public Utilities crews make repairs.
Traffic traveling southbound on Diamond Drive and eastbound onto Pajarito Road is unaffected. Vehicles traveling westbound on Pajarito Road will detour north onto Diamond Drive. Water valves have been shut off to isolate the break. No customers should be without water.
Once the damage is assessed, DPU crews will have a better idea as to how long it will take to make repairs.
