Water main break shuts down West Carrollton road

WEST CARROLLTON — A water main break shut down a road Wednesday afternoon in West Carrollton.

Alex Road is temporarily closed between East Central Avenue and East Dixie Drive as a result of the incident, the city said in a 2:31 p.m. post to its Facebook page.

“Please use caution in this area while our crews work to make the repair,” the city said in the post.

As of 6:51 p.m., crews still have positive pressure on the pipe, and don’t believe anyone’s service to be disrupted, West Carrollton spokeswoman Cheryl Dillin told Dayton Daily News.

“We found the break and are making the repair,” Dillin said. “We should have a timeframe soon.”

There is no boil advisory, she said. In the case of a boil advisory, affected residents will notified.
