Water Main Break Causes

Arlington Water Utilities crews are working to repair a 42-inch water main break Saturday that closed a section of Matlock Road in Southeast Arlington and caused low water pressure for some residents and businesses in the area.

The water main break happened at approximately 6 a.m. near Matlock Road and Nathan Lowe Road. Because of the leak, the City had set up barricades to close northbound and southbound Matlock Road between Summerwood Drive and Sublett Road. The southbound lanes reopened around 1 p.m. A northbound lanes is expected to reopen by late Saturday afternoon.

Drivers should seek alternate routes until further notice.

The City of Arlington has partnered with Waze to give drivers the best experience possible to get around town. Drivers can download Waze for free at www.waze.com/get for iOS and Android and see real-time traffic, find optimal routes, avoid road closures and more.

Water pressure should return to normal over the coming hours. Water pressure did not reach levels that would require the City to issue a boil water notice.

The Parks Mall and Arlington Highlands shopping center do have water service.
