Workers were repairing a 42-inch water main break on Saturday that closed a section of Matlock Road in southeast Arlington and caused low water pressure for several residents and businesses.
The water main break happened about 6 a.m. near Matlock Road and Nathan Lowe Road. City workers set up barricades to close northbound and southbound Matlock Road between Summerwood Drive and Sublett Road.
The leak has been contained and and one northbound lane of Matlock was closed. Motorists were asked to seek alternate routes until further notice.
Water pressure did not reach levels that required customers to boil water and the pressure should return to normal after repairs are made, according to a statement from city officials.
Never miss a local story.
The Parks Mall and Arlington Highlands shopping center do have water service.
