TUCSON - Users of The Loop should avoid the intersection of South Harrison Road at East Escalante Road as workers repair a damaged water main.
A contractor working at the intersection damaged a 12-inch water main last night, according to Tucson Water, resulting in an interruption of water service in the area. Tucson Water crews worked overnight to restore water service to approximately 1,200 customers.
Southbound Harrison Road is closed at Burnett Street, northbound Harrison Road is closed at Irvington Road, and westbound Escalante is closed at Harrison Road. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are asked to find alternate routes until repairs can be completed.
The boundary of the area affected by the outage is approximately the Pantano Wash on the north, East Irvington Road on the south, South Houghton Road to the east, and South Harrison Road to the west.
