WICHITA, Kansas — Hillside and Mount Vernon in southeast Wichita will be closed through the weekend after a water main break.

The break happened about 1:15 Thursday morning causing the road to buckle.

It took until early Thursday evening for crews to fix the water main and restore service to about 70 water customers.

The city says the intersection will have to stay closed through the weekend to allow for pavement repairs.

It’s expected to reopen sometime Monday.
