Water main break blocks Memorial traffic in Lakeland

East Memorial Boulevard in Lakeland is partially blocked due to a water main break.

According to city officials, the “major” break prompted an electric pole to fall across the lanes. They said Memorial was blocked in both directions between North Lake Parker Avenue and North Ingraham Avenue, but the view from SkyFOX showed traffic getting through.

The water department is working repairs on the water main while Lakeland Electric crews replace the pole.
