The closure of a portion of Broadway in Alton near Lincoln – Douglas Square will last about another week, according to the city’s public works director.  A water main break that happened in mid-April that washed out much of the ground underneath the pavement is being repaired, but more damage is being found the further east they go on Broadway. 

But Bob Barnhart tells The Big Z there is reason for optimism.

Street crews have finished the repair work on the section between Piasa and Market Street, and expect to have that part of the road opened by Wednesday morning at the latest.
