Hutchinson Public Works Water Maintenance Repairing Water Line Break on E 17th Ave


HUTCHINSON, Kan. – On February 28th, a water line break was reported in the 2700 block of East 17th Ave. where 17th transitions to Airport Road. The break is on a 10-inch water line that was installed in 1967.  Public Works Water Maintenance staff are beginning to excavate the line and there are no customers affected while this repair is being made.

Due to the location of the water line break, it requires the closure of E 17th Ave. from Apple Lane to 11th. Traffic control will remain in place while the repair is being made to protect the safety of the workers and the public. An update will be provided with a date the road will be re-opened as soon as the repair is completed.
