UPDATE: Signal Mountain Road water main repaired

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — According to Tennessee American Water, the water main break on Signal Mountain Road was repaired early Saturday morning.

However, the portion of roadway dug up to repair the main is not yet fully repaired.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Another water main has broken, but this time on Signal Mountain Road, leaving businesses and the surrounding area without water.

The break was caused by cold weather which strained the pipes, and caused the break.

Tennessee American Water said on Facebook it was a 12 inch main break.

In order to make repairs, the water has been shut off from the Walmart on Signal Mountain Road to Suck Creek Road.

Crews do not know how long they will be working on the break.

“It’s still hard to tell because we don’t have it completely exposed due to a nearby  gas main but once we get it exposed we will have a better idea. I would say at least 4 hours probably more,” said Grady Stout with Tennessee American Water early Friday evening.

Tennessee American Water crews say they are working as quickly and safely as possible, and that water will resume flowing to the area as soon as possible.
