Service to some retailers, residents interrupted after water main break in Gainesville

Water in the area of Alta Vista Road and John W. Morrow Jr. Parkway has been turned off pending repair of a 12-inch water main break, Gainesville Water Resources reported Friday morning.

The outage impacts shopping centers on either side of Alta Vista, to include standalone retailers, plus residences on Tower Heights Road. Around 100 customers are currently without water, according to the water department. 

There is no estimated time of repair, but crews are on the scene and working to restore services as quickly as possible, the city said.

Alta Vista is currently closed at John Morrow until further notice, as is the turn lane and right-hand travel lane of John Morrow at Alta Vista.

Those navigating the area are urged to drive carefully, and watch for construction workers and equipment during this time.
