Falmouth Water Main Break

A water main break on Route 28 in West Falmouth slowed down and rerouted traffic.

A water main break around 6:45 AM Sunday, November 3, rerouted traffic for several hours in the area of Route 28 at West Falmouth Highway and the intersection of Blacksmith Shop Road.

"This appears to be a significant break, please avoid the area. Traffic will be detoured at Chapoquoit Rd and Old Dock Rd," the Falmouth Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

Falmouth Water Department crews tended to the break and cleaned up the area, with assistance from police and fire/rescue personnel, a Falmouth police dispatcher said.
