SILVER CREEK — A water main break off Route 5 disrupted traffic in the Village of Silver Creek throughout the day Wednesday.

According to the Village Clerk’s office, a water main broke on Route 5 near the train tracks in the village and impacted traffic through Main Street and Central Avenue. Detours utilized Route 20 as an alternative route. Water was shut off throughout much of the impacted areas.

The roads were opened back up and water services restored to all impacted areas by Wednesday night. St. George Enterprises assisted the village on Wednesday.

The village is unsure of a cause of the break at this time.
