Drivers will currently encounter delays driving down 23rd Street in Columbus.

Public Works Director Chuck Sliva said another water main break occurred at about the intersection of 22nd Avenue and 23rd Street following the one that occurred earlier Wednesday at the intersection of 16th Avenue and 23rd Street. The first one had been repaired, but broke again in the same spot. As a result, it will be off for a little while longer.

A second crew is starting on the other leak shortly as of 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, Sliva noted, adding that it wasn't as bad as the first. 

"Please slow down and expect lane closures and traffic interruptions in this area," Sliva said.
