Hudson water main breaks causes slick streets, downtown detours, and silence from city offices

Water gushed down Hudson's Warren and Union streets much of today, January 17, as the result of a water main break on Worth Street. A detour, lasting close to six hours, occurred as crews from the city's Department of Public Works toiled to stem the flow, which caused several icy spots in downtown Hudson, including a particularly slick intersection at the corner of 7th and Warren Sts., as well as quite a bit of confusion coming into town from outside. Repeated calls to city offices and the DPW on Monday afternoon, from 3 p.m. on, went unanswered.
