Lassiter Mill Road reopens after water main break in Raleigh

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - Officials in Raleigh say that a water main break on Lassiter Mill Road Saturday evening closed the road.

The break was reported just before 7 p.m. in the 3700 block of Lassiter Mill Road, which is near Marlowe Road, Raleigh officials said.

Both directions of the road were closed. The road, which connects Six Forks Road with St. Mary's Street, was open again on Sunday.

Mary Clare Freeman talked about the call she got from her parents at their home on Lassiter Mill Road in North Hills around 6:30 p.m. Saturday, after the water main broke near their home.

"I guess that's what happens when you live in front of a water main," Freeman said. "All of this mud, and then our gardens on the other side. The garden was underwater." 

She said her parents hunkered down inside their home as crews began working to stop the break. 

"I think the most annoying part for them has been that it's taken -- it's been 6:30 p.m., it's now 9:45 p.m., 10 p.m. The police were the first to come, and it took a while for the water service folks to show up."

She and others hope to see the neighborhood return to normal soon.

"Luckily everything has dried up," she said. "The landscaping isn't much of a problem. But hopefully, it dries up soon."

Raleigh Police and Public Works crews were out Saturday night working on fixing the break.
