SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — The eastbound lanes of 3300 South are closed from Main Street to State Street after a water main break Sunday morning.

According to South Salt Lake Police, the break occurred before 9:30 a.m. in the area of 3300 South Main Street, flooding the road with water, resulting in the closure of both the eastbound and westbound lanes.

The westbound lanes were later reopened, but the eastbound lanes remain closed as of the latest update. Police said at noon that eastbound could remain closed for several hours, or possibly even until Monday.

State Street is open, but closures may change as workers with Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District assess and repair the damage and investigate the cause.

SSLPD further advised drivers to avoid the area, take alternate routes, and be mindful of the workers if they need to drive through the area.
