Water Main Break
A portion of Rio Grande Avenue near Lake Leguna is currently closed due to a water main break. Contractors are working on repairing the break and all attempts will be made to keep at least one westbound lane open while repairs are made. Please use caution in this area and pay attention to all flagmen and directional signage. As no homes are impacted by this water main break, a precautionary boil water notice has not been issued.
