Out and About - Water main break
Crews from Alexandria Light and Power worked in single-digit temperatures and face-numbing wind chills Monday as they repaired a water main break on Nokomis Street.
Drivers encountered a detour between the 10th and 11th Avenue intersections and were routed around the block to Maple Street.
ALP knew about the water leak in advance and issued a news release about it last Friday.
The work was expected to be completed sometime on Tuesday. Water was also temporarily shut off in that neighborhood.
