LAKEWOOD – Officials with the Board of Public Utilities expect water value work on Route 394 near the Cinema 8 Theaters in Lakewood will cause some traffic congestion on Wednesday.

Becky Robbins, the Communications Coordinator for the utility, says crews will be replacing two water valves starting at 5 a.m.

In addition to slowed traffic, Robbins says residents living in the area of Fairmount and Lowe Avenues, Sunset Cove in North Harmony; and on Summit and Lowe Avenues to Fairmount and Big Tree Road will likely lose water for around two hours.

Once work is completed, widespread discolored water will be seen in Lakewood, Cottage Park, Ashville and North Harmony, Robbins explained.

Residents should not do laundry until water clears which can take 12 to 24 hours.
