Wake Forest water service restored after second main break

Posted January 27, 2016

— Water service has been restored to a stretch of Durham Road in Wake Forest for the second time in two days after a 12-inch water main ruptured on Wednesday about 24 hours after being replaced.

Crews from the City of Raleigh returned to the 700 block of Durham road to repair a break in a section of pipe that was installed on Tuesday, according to a news release from the town. Durham Road from Capital Boulevard to Tyler Run Drive was narrowed to one lane while crews worked on the repair.

Several residents who live on Durham road, and neighbors on Magnolia Forest Court, Oakwood Estates, Hope Street and Richland Drive, were again without water service.

Service was restored by 7:15 a.m. on Wednesday.
