FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Part of College Avenue was blocked after a water main break on Thursday (June 22).

Officers have blocked the southbound lane of College Avenue through the area while the issue is repaired. It’s expected to take about two hours to repair the 8″ water main pipe.

Water has been shut off from Township to Poplar.
