A portion of Pine Ridge Boulevard in Wausau will be closed for about 8 hours so crews can repair a water main break, according to city officials.

The repair is slated to begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to a news release.

Drivers traveling westbound from Bridge Street will be allowed to turn south onto Pine Ridge Boulevard or go straight into the Aspirus Wausau Hospital parking lot, but will not be allowed to turn north.

The northbound turn onto Pine Ridge Boulevard is being reserved for ambulance traffic access to the hospital.

The road is expected to reopen overnight. See the attached closure map, below, for details. Map provided by the city of Wausau.1-16-19 Street Closure Map – Pine Ridge Blvd
