Water problems detoured drivers in
Route 100 between River Road and Route
108 was closed to fix a water main leak.
The problem was discovered Tuesday
when water started surfacing from underneath the road in front of the Stowe
Fire Department. Crews needed to dig through the asphalt and an additional
layer of concrete before they were able to find the damaged pipe.
"With the old
concrete road, the water travels underneath the concrete before it finds a
place to escape. So, just because we saw water coming out of the ground in that
particular spot does not necessarily mean that is where the break is,"
said Richard Grogan of Stowe Public Works.
Crews were eventually able to locate and fix
the problem. The road was back open to traffic around 3 p.m.
