Water main break on PGA causing traffic problems

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - Drivers are urged to temporarily avoid the intersection of PGA Boulevard and Military Trail in Palm Beach Gardens due to a water main break.

Update, MON 3:30 PM: Crews have closed eastbound PGA Boulevard at Military Trail while they repair the pipe. Only local traffic is being allowed through.

Workers at the department of transportation would not say what caused the break in the line, but did say it was not caused by construction.

No word when PGA Boulevard will fully re-open.

Previously: The city says three eastbound lanes of PGA Boulevard are closed at the intersection. One lane of southbound Military Trail is also closed.

The city says eastbound traffic is backing up to the Turnpike, and eastbound drivers on PGA Boulevard are being diverted northbound at Central Boulevard.

According to the city it could be several hours before the roadway is partially open again, and it could take all day to fully open the road.
