WYOMING, Mich. — Clyde Park and Kenowa Avenues are both closed due to water main breaks.

Clyde Park Avenue was closed between 28th Street and 32nd Street early Tuesday; Kenowa Avenue was closed between Jacobs Street and 56th Street Thanksgiving night.

The break was discovered sometime overnight, and both city workers and nearby residents were seen fighting to keep the gushing water from spreading.

At one point, Wyoming Police officers went house to house to warn nearby residents of the possibility of water encroaching on their homes.

It was unknown how long the street would remain closed or how long repairs would take. The break created a sinkhole and caused utility poles to lean.

The nearest north-south arteries to use as detours are Buchanan Avenue to the east and Michael Avenue to the west.

The road is expected to remain closed through Dec. 9, according to the city’s Public Works department. A contractor is expected to lay down asphalt that day, they said, so the road is expected to reopen in the late evening hours.

Detours are posted, and local access to businesses and residential areas are available.
