Water line break closes Boxcars, part of 1st Street
January 2, 2014
Employees of Boxcars Restaurant and Casino found themselves without water this morning due to a broken water line.
Craig Anderson, the owner of Boxcars, said his business will be without water until the city gets the line fixed.
"We'll probably open up sometime today," Anderson said. "I'm hoping they will have it done today."
In a 9 a.m. interview today, Anderson said the crews were still pulling the old water line out in order to replace it.
"We have no idea (what caused it) until we get the old one out and take a look at it," Anderson said.
The line connects Boxcars to the main city line.
The portion of 1st Street next to the business was reduced to one lane each direction this morning in order to give the construction crews enough space, which included the turning lane, to remedy the situation.
