MITCHELL — City officials have reopened a high-traffic street near downtown Mitchell after repairs to a water main have been completed.

Up until approximately 3:30 p.m., Mitchell's Public Works Department was working to repair a water main break at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Rowley Street.

Road closures were in effect for one block to the east and west of the intersection, and travelers were asked to avoid the area as city crews continued to work.

The intersection is now open to traffic.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Mitchell Republic." Often, the "Mitchell Republic" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
