UPDATE: Water main break shuts off water to Southwest Roanoke homes

Posted: Updated:

10:13 P.M. UPDATE: Water has been restored to those homes in Southwest Roanoke who lost water after a water main break on the 3500 Block of Dogwood Lane.

Traffic was closed in that area earlier today while crews were working to fix the break, but now has reopened.

All repairs were finished up tonight at 8 PM.


A water main break in Southwest Roanoke has blocked one road and shut off water to about 6 homes.

The water main break happened just after 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

Sarah Baumgarner with Western Virginia Water Authority says the 8-inch water main break happened on the 3500 block of Dogwood Lane. She says crews are working to fix the main break and expect to have water restored to those homes in the early evening.

For now traffic on that road and the block down from it is closed.

WSLS will continue to keep you updated.
