Water leak in downtown Craig creates minor traffic, hole in ground
Craig — Craig city workers dug a huge hole in the corner of Yampa Avenue and Victory Way on Wednesday morning in order to fix a water valve leak on a water main.
The work crew started early and finished construction later in the afternoon.
“We just don’t know yet if it’s a bolt that’s gone or just a seal” that caused the leak, said Tim Kulp, a water technician for the city. “We’re hoping to just repair the valve.”
The city found out about the leak because a small puddle of water was present over the valve on the street prior to digging up the corner.
7:00 a.m. Near the intersection of First Street and U.S. Highway 40, police in Craig responded to a property damage crash call. Officers investigated an accident between two pickup trucks.
