ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – If you travel southbound on Big Bend on your way home from work, you may want to take another route.  A water main break has closed Big Bend’s two southbound “through” lanes just north of Manchester Road.

Drivers will still be able to cross Manchester and continue south on Big Bend using a lane usually dedicated to left turns on eastbound Manchester. 

Since approximately 25,000 motorists drive this section of road on weekdays, drivers are urged to avoid this area until at least Thursday morning.
