— Wade Avenue reopened Wednesday morning after crews repaired an 8-inch sewer main, Raleigh officials said.

The work began at midnight between the 2800 and 3100 blocks of Wade Avenue and was completed by 10:45 a.m., officials said.

The closure required detours on Dixie Trail and Brooks Avenue to Hillsborough Street.

The repairs also include flushing the sewer main, but officials said service for nearby customers shouldn't be interrupted.

    I was in that mess this morning. They weren't too clear about the detour and most of us made a right on a side street to cut back over to Dixie Trail, then sat on that side street for what seemed like forever. Dixie Trail was all back up as well.
