On Monday, I had an extremely busy GA shift. This is the first of two news briefs I wrote before noon. I found out about the road closing via Twitter, which I’m finally beginning to use as a reporting tool. It truly is a great source of information.
Westridge Drive closed for sewer repairs
COLUMBIA — Portions of Westridge Drive will be closed through Tuesday evening for sewer repairs.
Twehous Excavating Co. Inc. will be performing repairs on a sewer main on Westridge Drive between North Circle and Rollins Road that will result in a closure on this stretch of road, according to a news release from the Columbia Public Works Department.
The closure began 7 a.m. Monday, and the street is expected to be fully reopened by 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The department urges motorists and pedestrians to use an alternate route if possible and use extreme caution in the construction area.
