Water main break closes northbound Battleground Avenue

GREENSBORO, N.C. — All lanes of northbound Battleground Avenue in Greensboro are closed due to a water main break Thursday morning.

Northbound lanes on Battleground Avenue from Benjamin Parkway and West Bessemer Avenue will be closed to fix the break. Crews will also close Grecade Street from West Bessemer Avenue to Battleground Avenue.

Water service will not be impacted and crews hope to have one lane open by rush hour.

Greensboro Water Resources Crew Supervisor Dustin Cain doesn’t believe the break is related to recent weather.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area and take alternate routes.
