Water main break causes traffic confusion


WATERLOO (KWWL) - A watermain break caused confusion for some drivers in Waterloo Wednesday morning.
Drivers heading north on Logan Avenue were told to turn at Newell Street. 

We're told many drivers were driving in circles looking for a way to get back to Logan Avenue, which eventually becomes Highway 63 out of town.

A truck driver frustrated with the situation said he planned to call 911 to ask which way to go.
He was not the only person looking for a way out.

Waterloo police say drivers were detoured using Newell, Idaho and Donald Streets.
Police say the detour is longer than normal, which may be why drivers are having problems.
