Authorities closed the 7100 block of Country Club Drive while crews were making repairs, Arian Collins, spokesman for the city Public Utilities Department, said.
Crews expected to have service restored to those affected by the break and the roadway reopened by about 2 p.m., Collins said. --City News Service
