Crews fix water main break at Francis and Crestline

SPOKANE, Wash. — Crews from the City of Spokane responded to a water main break at Francis Avenue and Crestline Street.

The City said the northbound and southbound lanes of Crestline were closed, with detours in place. The eastbound lanes of Francis were closed and the westbound lanes were restricted and possibly detoured.

The Water Department was working into the night to repair the water main. They said they expect the roads to be back open in the morning.

The City says there was no danger to drinking water. Kirstin Davis, Communications Manager for the City of Spokane, says when water main breaks happen, the City uses a pressurized system and flushing practices to avoid contamination.
