Water main break closes Highway 20 in Port Townsend

A water-main break in downtown Port Townsend has closed Highway 20 this morning between Washington Street and the state ferry terminal.

Traffic is being rerouted on city streets around the flooding and no delays are reported on ferry crossings.

City public works crews responded to a report of a water-main break around 3 a.m. today near the Tides Inn on Water Street. Claudia Bingham Baker, spokeswoman for the state Department of Transportation, said city crews are still searching for the source of the break. It’s not known when the highway might reopen, she said.
