FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A water main burst on Joyce Boulevard on Friday afternoon (July 24), officials say.

The pipe burst after 1 p.m., and it took Fayetteville utility crews 30  minutes to shut the water off, according to Tim Nyander, Fayetteville utilities director.

The broken water main caused water to spill over the road behind Applebees and Chick-fil-A near the Northwest Arkansas Mall, Nyander said.

By 3:30 p.m., the pipe was repaired, and the street was cleared of excess water, according to the Fayetteville Water Department.
