SPOKANE, Wash. -- Traffic will be detoured on East Hartson Avenue between South Chandler Street and South Grant Street on Spokane’s South Hill while crews repair a water main break.

This section of Hartson will remain closed until at least Wednesday morning. Drivers are asked to use alternative routes while crews work on repairing the main break.

Officials said crews need to remove more broken asphalt than they originally thought.

There was as much as eight inches of water at the intersection of East 5th Avenue and Chandler Street. A wastewater vac truck is taking care of the flooded intersection.
