Water restored to Beatties Ford Road, detours remain

Charlotte Water said traffic delays are expected in the area.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Crews with Charlotte Water responded to Beatties Ford Road after a water main break, Charlotte Water confirmed Tuesday.

It happened near the intersection with Russell Avenue, which is near Northwest School of the Arts. 

Charlotte Water said traffic delays are expected in the area, and those who must travel through can use a detour onto LaSalle Street to Statesville Avenue to Oaklawn Avenue.  

An estimated 50 Charlotte Water customers lost water service as a result of the water main break. 

Charlotte Water officials say a broken pipe under the road is the source of the break. 

Due to the water break, the Northwest School of the Arts is delaying its start time by two hours on Wednesday. The school will dismiss as normal.
