The water main break closed off the section of Waldo Rood Boulevard that stretches from Cary Parkway to MacArthur Drive, the Town of Cary’s Deanna Hawkes said.

Authorities said Monday evening that the road will still be closed for Tuesday morning’s commute. On Tuesday morning, Town of Cary officials said the best-case scenario is that the road reopens in the afternoon. The worst-case scenario is that it won’t open until Wednesday. The timing of the reopening will be based on whether it rains and if so, how much.

The portion of the road impacted by the break began to dip following the break and is unsafe for cars to drive on, she said.

Matt Wetherell with the Town of Cary Public Works Department said the cause of the break is not known at this time, but no homeowners or businesses have been affected.

The Town of Cary said in a release that the Town’s water is safe for consumption at this time.
