TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A west-side Tucson street was closed because of a broken water line on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Officials expect the closure to last two weeks.

North Fairview Avenue was closed north of West Prince Road from West Thurber to West Simmons roads.

Drivers were advised to use North Oracle Road as an alternate.

Water service to a nearby apartment complex was interrupted, but has been restored.

Tucson Water crews are working to replace 400 feet of water line. The pipe was installed in 1965 and was designed for 50-year service life.
