A broken Alton water main has been repaired, but Broadway remains closed in both directions between Washington Avenue and the Belchick Expressway today.  The road repairs could take until Friday afternoon to complete, but a precautionary boil order has been lifted.  Motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible, but can still follow detour signs at the road closure.
