UPDATE: Streets have reopened

A water main break has closed some streets on the east side of Spokane this morning.

The city’s water department responded early this morning to a water main break on Riverside Avenue between Helena and Madelia streets.

Riverside is closed from Helena to Madelia, and Madelia is closed from Riverside to Front Avenue.

Closures are expected through at least mid-morning. The break is in a six-inch cast iron main, a city news release said.

This story will be updated when the streets are reopened.
