Sewer break closes West Main Street

Friday, February 1, 2013

A collapsed City sewer service line has forced closure of a portion of Cherokee's West Main Street at the 9th Street intersection.

Crews closed West Main Street from 5th Street to 11th Street Thursday afternoon after the Emergency Call notified the utility companies to flag and mark all underground utilities in the area.

City Administrator Don Eikmeier said the collapsed sewer line is deep, and the street closure could last into the weekend, depending on how the repair work progresses.

West Main Street traffic will be detoured on North 11th and North 5th Streets two blocks north of Main to West Cedar Street, according to Eikmeier.
