COLUMBIA — Ninth Street near the corner of Cherry Street will be partially blocked Tuesday morning through Wednesday afternoon.

Columbia Water and Light will be repairing a Ninth Street water main line, which will cause northbound and eastbound traffic delays, according to a Water and Light news release. While the section will still be open to traffic, motorists are encouraged to seek alternative routes.

Service interruptions may occur on Ninth Street between Cherry and Locust streets. The news release stated that customers will be notified if interruptions occur. 

A precautionary boil advisory could be in effect if a substantial water pressure drop occurs in the main water line, according the news release. This possible advisory would be in effect for one day or until water testing confirms the water is safe to drink.  Customers under a boil advisory will be notified. 

Supervising editor is Emilie Stigliani.
