Stadium Drive closed due to water main break

UPDATE - Stadium Drive is expected to reopen by 1 p.m.


Crews from the City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD) are responding to a water main break along the 500 block of McDowell Drive, in the vicinity of the Stadium Drive intersection.

Due to water rushing across the roadway, Stadium Drive is closed. Motorists should avoid the area and take an alternate route.

The water main break is affecting approximately 15 apartments in the vicinity of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. SEBTS is in the process of evacuating those apartments and relocating the affected residents.

There is no timetable for when the water main will be repaired, water service restored and Stadium Drive reopened.
