Water main break wrecks Highland Park road


Havre residents in Highland Park may have had difficulty on a Sunday drive if they had to go near the intersection of 13th Street West and McKinley Avenue.

The Department of Public Works started digging for a broken section of a 12-inch main line around 10:30 a. m.

"That's a reasonably good-sized water main up there, " Jim Cook from Public Works said.

Over the next nine hours, the crew worked in a massive pit to replace a 6-foot section of the pipe.

Cook said that the hole was filled back in that night, around 7:30. It was then covered in gravel on Monday to allow drivers access again.

He added that they would repave the area once they could get the pavement.
