Ruptured Kannapolis water main35.479496 -80.6137579
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. -– A section of Dale Earnhardt Boulevard between Rogers Lake Road and Fairview Road is still closed after a road construction crew accidentally hit and ruptured a water main Wednesday, causing a portion of the road to wash away.
Water service was restored to the area Wednesday afternoon but according to the NCDOT, the earliest estimate for the road to reopen is Monday. Officials said so much rushing water damaged the road that it will take a while to repair.
Residents are asked to use detours from Rogers Lake Road to Main Street and from Cannon Boulevard to Fairview Road to Dale Earnhardt Boulevard until the road is reopened.
