FORT WORTH, Texas — Traffic could be impacted throughout the weekend following a 6-inch water main break in downtown Fort Worth, city officials said.

Crews were responding to the site Friday afternoon in the 300 block of East Weatherford Street.

Officials said traffic in the area has been reduced to one lane starting at Commerce Street. Drivers are urged to avoid downtown on Weatherford Street and to use alternate routes.

Officials said crews will begin repairs around 6 p.m. Friday, because the main cannot be taken out of service until after 5 p.m.
