WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A water main leak that impacted the Monday morning commute for motorists traveling in the area of Airport Road in Warwick has been fixed.

City officials say a leak in the area of 536 Airport Road was discovered around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Warwick Water Department supervisor Terry DePetrillo said Monday morning that a gasket on an asbestos concrete pipe started leaking and water started flowing up onto the street.

Though temperatures have dropped, DePetrillo said the colder weather wasn’t a factor.

The road was down to one lane in each direction for several hours while crews worked to fix the leak and repair the road.
