MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Roads are back open and the water connected has been restored after a large water main break in Manitou Springs.

The city announced late Monday night its public works department was working on an emergency water main repair in the Midland and Ruxton area.

An update early Tuesday morning said the water main break released high volumes of water, and therefore large amounts of debris, onto Ruxton Avenue, the Ruxton roundabout, Manitou Place and various other surrounding roads.

The city said it has caused “minor-severe damage” to the roadway infrastructure.

Ruxton Ave (from the roundabout to Capitol Hill) and Osage (from Manitou Place to Ruxton) are now reopened.
