Tuesday Update: The 12th Street closure from Green Avenue (Squaw Valley Apartments) to Highway 59 for the broken water main is still in effect and most likely will be in effect through the end of the week. Crews continue to work on the road and get it re-opened, but we need some warmer temperatures, and those aren't expected to be here until tomorrow.
The City of Gillette announces that 12th Street from Green Avenue (Squaw Valley Apartments) to Highway 59 will be closed to through traffic until further notice. If you use this section of 12th Street to commute to work or school, please use an alternative route and plan accordingly.
Access to Campbell County High School - North Campus and the Squaw Valley Apartments from 12th Street is still open, and access to Prime Rib and the McCann Center is still open from 12th Street at the west end of the closure.
The water main break was discovered early in the afternoon on Saturday, January 25th. City crews and a contractor responded immediately and began work to repair the water main; however, the size of the break and winter conditions have made working conditions less than ideal.
