Eastbound traffic on the 2500 block of Forest Drive will be rerouted this week as crews repair damage from a break in an 18-inch water main over the weekend.
Cars and trucks traveling east on Forest Drive will turn right onto Millwood Avenue, left onto Gervais Street, left onto Glenwood Road and then right onto Forest Drive.
Westbound traffic will not be affected.
City officials estimate repairs will take the rest of this week, but they could extend into next week if rainy weather keeps crews from working. Forecasters were calling for rain for most of the day Tuesday as remnants of Hurricane Ida pass through the state.
Residents and businesses on Forest Drive between McDuffie Avenue and Harrison Road, and on Glenwood Road from Forest Drive to Trenholm Road were under a boil water advisory Sunday and Monday. That advisory was lifted this morning.
