Repairs made on Calhoun Street after water main ruptures

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Calhoun Street in downtown Fort Wayne was closed most of the day Sunday after a water main burst.

The underground 12-inch main ruptured around 8 a.m., according to Fort Wayne Superintendent of Water Maintenance Kurt Roberts.

Roberts said crews worked through the day to make repairs. The road was back open by 7 p.m. once the street surface was fixed.

Road restoration work was expected to last through the day Monday.

The rupture closed the 800 block of Calhoun Street between Wayne and Berry Streets. Roberts said the rupture did prevent water from reaching customers in the area, but water was back on for customers served by the pipe after the repairs were made.

It’s not clear what caused the pipe to burst.
