WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Water service has been shut off for properties in Winston-Salem along Highway 66 for emergency water main repairs, according to a statement released by the City of Winston-Salem on Monday.

The full statement is provided below:

“Water service has been shut off for properties along Highway 66 for emergency water main repairs. Roads remain open but customers from Watkins Ford Road to Hwy 311/I-74 may experience a service interruption. The following steps will help you through this interruption: 

  • Turn water heater circuit breaker to the off position. If you use gas, contact your gas company if you have any questions. 
  • Avoid opening any faucets or flushing any water closets during this time. This will help minimize air in your system.

For more information, call 336-727-8000.”
