We received word early this morning that the break is fixed and the system continues to be recharged.

The next step and its a big one, the contractor for the 5s project and the dot maintenance are in inspecting the roadway... they have to clean it up and performance the necessary work to get the road open for traffic.

Jimmy: 12:40: 55 due to the watermain break, as you c seetht only do the crews need to get to the break itselfut t water undermined the roadway.

Now that the main is repaired we are assessing that area along with the entire area that was flooded out to make sure the entire roadway is in good shape.

In addition to the water main repair, national grid was on site reapplying insulation to the existing gas line before the fill was put in.

Dot crews are also clearing and salting the roads in that area... however...--right now...oriskany street ...from broad street to genesee street is closed in both directions.
