Broken water line in Biloxi causes traffic delays

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A broken water line in Biloxi has caused a traffic hazard at Irish Hill Drive and St. John Avenue.

Biloxi police are asking drivers to avoid the area until repairs, which are expected to take a couple of hours, are complete.

The cause of the break is not known at this time, but in recent days contractors installing a new gas line hit the water main at Miramar Avenue.
