ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Another water main break, another road closure.

On Thursday, a water main break closed South Seventh Street between West Jefferson and West Liberty.

The road requires significant repairs, the City of Ann Arbor said in a notice.

A date for the road to reopen has not been determined.

The city is no stranger to water main breaks. In June, a major water main break closed the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Maple Road in west Ann Arbor for several days. The closures caused traffic backups and a boil water advisory was issued for the surrounding area. Road repairs due to the break closed portions of North Maple Road through July.
