Broken water main shuts down 17th Street

A broken water main shuts down part of 17th Street Friday. The street did buckle, making it dangerous to pass through.

A broken water main made the street buckle steps away from Columbus High School.  Principal Marvin Crumbs said the school was not affected and would continue the day as normal.

A Columbus Water Works representative says the main should be fixed and the street reopened by the end of the day.
