The Oak Ridge Public Works Department has issued an emergency road closure notice forÂ Robertsville Road at Jefferson Avenue beginning today and lasting through Monday. A short detour will be visible to traffic.
Workers are replacing an eight-inch water line that runs underneath the road, said Scott Jackson, Oak Ridge Public Works operations manager.
He said a water line broke there several months ago and caused a “big mess.”
“The old line was rotten, and it’s been repaired too many times,” Jackson said.
