A water main break has caused major traffic problems at the busy Veterans Boulevard-Murdock Circle intersection, according to Charlotte County Sheriff’s officials. The pipe break happened early this morning at Paulson Drive near between Prineville Street and Veterans Boulevard. It’s shut off the traffic lights on Veterans Boulevard, Murdock Circle and Paulson Drive near the Port Charlotte Target and Best Buy stores. It’s also the road that links the Port Charlotte Town Center mall and Walmart. Drivers should avoid this area today.
Paulson Drive, between Prineville Street and Veterans Boulevard is closed. The closure will continue through most of Tuesday. Sheriff’s officials recommend an alternate route to avoid the area. Because the water from the broken pipe has undermined the roadway on Paulson, the road will likely be closed for a couple of days while workers fix the pipe and the roadway.
