A water main break right near the railway crossing at Fourth Street and Victoria Road has disrupted traffic on the morning on Monday, Nov. 30.

On Sunday evening, the City of Revelstoke announced they’d start work Monday to repair an eight-inch water main that burst in the area on Friday. Over the weekend, the area around the train tracks crossing the road at the Fourth/Victoria/Townley intersection experienced some flooding, and temporary warning signs were erected.

The work on Monday morning diverted eastbound traffic away from the intersection, while westbound traffic was controlled by a signal person.

Crews could be seen chopping up the blacktop as of 8 a.m. on Monday. No word on how long the repairs will take to complete.
