Sewer main break causes temporary lane closure on Mormon Coulee Road

A sewer main break under Mormon Coulee Road near Broadview forced the city to close the southbound lane until further notice while crews repair the line Monday morning.

The La Crosse Sanitary Sewer Utility Department is asking residents to avoid contact with the water in Pammel Creek below Mormon Coulee Road. Sewage will continue to reach Pammel Creek until repairs are complete.

Drivers are advised to avoid the area and to find an alternate route.

Officials expect the repair work to be complete by the end of the day.
