U.S. 31 in Sellersburg closed until after 5 p.m.

Water main break forces town to set up detours

SELLERSBURG — A water main break has forced Sellersburg town officials to shut down a portion of U.S. 31, and the road isn’t expected to reopen until after 5 p.m. 

Sellersburg Municipal Works Director Ken Alexander said the break was noticed at about 9:30 a.m. Friday.

“Very few people are going to be affected as far as having their water turned off, and there’s no boil advisory unless we put something out on our web page,” Alexander said.

Detours have already been set, with traffic being diverted to North New Albany Street, Alexander said.

Alexander said that the town’s employees are well-equipped to handle the cold, and that the freezing temperatures should not impede the workers’ ability to fix the problem.
